Supreme Court to hear Friedrichs v. CTA

Another potential blow to middle class in age of growing inequality

The Supreme Court decided today to hear an anti-union lawsuit, Friedrichs v. CTA. Although the California Teachers Association (CTA) was named as the defendant, a ruling in the case will equally impact the California Federation of Teachers. Depending on whether the Court rules narrowly or broadly, the decision could also affect all public sector unions in the United States.
