There's more good news for public servants in Maine

Last week was great for public servants all over our USA, and here are three (3) additional articles with great news that could impact thousands of workers here in Maine:

Supreme Court revives lawsuit seeking union agency fee refunds

“The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday revived a proposed class action filed by Illinois home health aides who were not union members and are seeking a refund of about $32 million in so-called “agency fees” they had to pay to a Service Employees International Union affiliate, a day after it ruled that requiring public sector workers to pay those fees is unconstitutional.” BTW, that union/PAC also has some deep roots in Maine.

Lawyer says court ruling helps Connecticut troopers in union dues suit

“Their lawyer, W. James Young of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, believes the U.S. Supreme Court ruling will help them win their case and get back the money they say was improperly deducted from their pay, plus interest and possible damages a judge could award. Union dues are about $750 per year per trooper.”

Case over home health care workers' union fees must be reconsidered, Supreme Court says

“As many as 80,000 Illinois home health care workers will get a second shot at recovering $32 million in union fees, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision earlier this week in a case over payments to unions.”

If you know any public servants here in Maine, please help spread this positive news to them as the liberal media folks here are not covering it very well... and I'm sure you're shocked by that fact.
