In a 5-4 decision, the court ruled that unions covering public sector workers — teachers, firefighters, police and administrators among them — could not charge nonmembers for their services, because doing so violated those nonmembers’ First Amendment rights “by compelling them to subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern.”
