On Feb. 9, newly elected Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner issued an executive order ending a requirement that non-unionized state workers pay “fair share” union dues. Governor Rauner estimates that of the 46,573 state workers covered by collective bargaining, approximately 6,580 are not unionized, but still pay an average of $577 a year in “fair share” dues. In signing the executive order, Governor Rauner stated that “these forced union dues are a critical cog in the corrupt bargaining that is crushing taxpayers.” For a more detailed discussion of this issue click here for our Labor and Employment Alert.
