Sending the Sheriff

Kirk, Russell
March 1976
National Review;3/19/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 9, p274
This article discusses a court dispute involving Katherine Ux, professor of art at Central Michigan University, who refused to pay her agency shop fee to the Central Michigan University Faculty Association in 1974. Ux fought against the labor union but unfortunately, the district court ruled against her in January 1976. Even if the court favors the association, some still criticize the ruling. In this regard, the author argues that the ruling of the court may have negative implications for the education sector of the country.
