Injunction bars collection of union dues from workers

Turnpike union is told to stop collecting dues from workers who are waiting to resign from the union. They have to wait because of a clause in the contract that forces workers to pay union dues until the expiration of a contract. A judge says they shouldn't have to wait.

The implications of this case could affect all public sector contracts which allow labor unions to violate workers' First Amendment rights.
