Today the U.S. Supreme Court handed a victory to employees who choose not to join a union, but who are nevertheless required to pay a fee to the union. Unions are already required to provide a notice to such employees spelling out the specific uses the fees will be put to, and allowing the employee to opt out of paying some of them.

This new ruling holds that a union must provide non-union employees a second notice within the same year should the union choose to issue a supplemental assessment. The Court also determined that the union must provide non-union members the opportunity to object to the supplemental assessment. Knox v. Service Employees International Union, Local 1000.
