Friedrichs vs. CTA Will Ring in the New Year at the Supreme Court
posted by: Garry | November 25, 2015, 09:10 PM   


After much speculation, we are excited to announce that a date has finally been set for hearing the case: January 11th, 2016.


Friedrichs vs. CTA has the potential to change the face of the teaching profession, and any profession bound by the respective union’s stronghold.


Already, unions have begun preparations for this decision by reaching out to teachers across the country to bring them tighter into the union fold and provide them with reasons not to leave should the Supreme Court rule against forced unionism. It’s clear that the unions fear the repercussions of an open marketplace for teachers.


Compulsory unionism is at the heart of why AAE was founded. As college educated professionals, we believe that teachers should be able to choose the association that best suits their needs. As such, we are looking forward to supporting teachers during the hearings of this case and we are excited for what this could mean for teachers who deserve to be put in the driver’s seat of elevating their profession.
