WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on July 1 granted a writ of certiorari filed by home child care providers seeking the return of union dues and agency fees and remanded the case to the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals for further consideration in light of its June 30 ruling in Pamela Harris, et al. v. Pat Quinn, Governor of Illinois, et al. (No. 11-681, U.S. Sup.), in which a divided panel found that "partial public employees" cannot be required to pay dues or fees if they do not wish to join or support a union (Carrie Schlaud, et al. v. Rick Snyder, Governor of Michigan, et al., No. 13-240, U.S. Sup; 2014 U.S. LEXIS 4698).
