How Family Child Care Providers in Washington Can Opt Out of SEIU 925 Dues
For years, family child care providers were required to pay union dues to SEIU 925 as a condition of employment and the state automatically deducted union dues from providers’ Working Connections reimbursement checks.
However, because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2014 decision in Harris v. Quinn, family child care providers can now demand that SEIU 925 cease withholding union dues/fees from their state paychecks.
The court referred to the requirement for partial-public employees like family child care providers to pay union dues as a money-making “scheme” for the union and ruled that the mandatory dues requirement violated providers’ First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and association.
