ABSTRACT
The article features the review of two cases by the Supreme Court upon the role of labor unions in American elections. The issue is whether non-union members who are forced to pay dues as a condition of employment can also be forced to support political ends to which they object. In the Abood vs. Detroit Board of Education, the Supreme Court held that compulsory union dues could be used for collective bargaining, contract administration, and grievance processing.
