Op-ed: SCOTUS should halt rogue labor board’s power grab in Ohio
February 2, 2023 // Americans for Fair Treatment, a community of public employees concerned about the potential for union officials to abuse their power, filed an amicus brief in solidarity with the technicians whose constitutional rights are under threat. Thousands of other similarly situated employees could also be harmed if the status quo stands. The FLRA further seeks to force Ohio’s adjutant general to post and email notices saying he agrees with the board’s position, and to require technicians to view that compelled speech. That order not only raises serious First Amendment issues of compelled speech, but also undermines federalism itself. By striking down the actions of the rogue labor board, the Supreme Court can rein in out-of-control bureaucrats while reinforcing the principle that Americans should not be forced to financially support a union against their will.
