And now the union would like a word in private

School district and public university administrators across the country will soon be welcoming thousands of new teachers and professors to orientation sessions. And then these administrators will have to leave the room so that the unions can recruit new members.

The integration process has become a key battleground for government unions in the country. For decades, workers have been able to count on collecting hundreds of millions of dollars a year from public employees as soon as they are hired.

Afscme that these involuntary payments violated the First Amendment.
