Michael Moschel Provides Insight on Supreme Court Case Impact on Public Health Systems

Media Mentions

July 1, 2015

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Michael Moschel was quoted in an article outlining the details of the case, Friedrichs vs. California Teachers Association, in which the Supreme Court will decide whether unions can continue to collect fees from non-members as long as those fees are not used for political purposes. In the current case, the teachers association is asking the court to essentially overturn a 1997 decision (Abood v. Detroit Board of Education) in which the court ruled that unions have the right to collect fees from non-member because the non-members ultimately benefit from any union negotiations. The forthcoming decision will have an impact on industries across the board, including unions that represent healthcare workers at public health systems.

According to Michael, "[i]f Abood is reversed, the court would essentially create a 'right-to-work' law for public sector employees."

The full article, "High Court Case Could Threaten Finances of Unions at Public Systems," was published by Modern Healthcare on June 30 and is available online.
