Government unions could lose a third of members after Supreme Court case

Washington Free Beacon:
One-in-three public sector workers would leaver their unions given the chance, according to a new poll.

Government union members won the right to cease automatic fee payments to unions in June after the Supreme Court found that mandatory dues as a condition of employment violated the U.S. Constitution. A poll found that a large portion of workers plan on taking that option now that it is available to them following the Supreme Court's 5-4 Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees ruling overturning coercive unionism.

"One-third plan to change what they are paying, with 6% saying they have already stopped paying dues and 25% saying they plan to stop paying," the poll found.
I expect that number could grow.  I think the impact when Wisconsin ended compulsory union dues was even more significant.
