The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation has joined the Cato Institute and the National Federation of Independent Business in filing a joint amicus brief urging the United States Supreme Court to take the case of an Illinois woman who is forced to pay a portion of a Medicaid stipend she receives for caring for her quadriplegic brother in the form of “dues” to the SEIU.

Thousands of Michigan residents are fighting the same battle against a forced, illegal unionization that made them SEIU members, which has funneled some $28 million to the union over the last six years. You can read several articles and commentaries by Mackinac Center analysts about the scheme here.
