An indepth panel discussion of the potential impact of two major cases addressing teacher rights when it comes to union membership. Friedrichs v. CTA, which will be decided by the United States Supreme Court, revisits Abood and whether agency shops violate the First Amendment by requiring public employees to opt out of supporting a union’s political activity rather than opt in. Bain v. CTA addresses political and non-political activity of the union in another way, insisting that union members be given a third option of paying for and receiving employment and association benefits, such as liability insurance coverage, without not support the political activity of the union.
