A Supreme Court decision could affect some local unions.

A 5 to 4 decision ruled that in the public sector, employees can't be forced to pay fees to the unions that represent them in collective bargaining. The justices ruled that it was a violation of the first amendment. Although in the private sector, Mike Copeland, who's a president of the United Auto Workers Local 1219, said it'll be a challenge for many. It'll be a challenge to convince people to commit to the union. Copeland said despite this news, he's seen an uptick in union membership.

Going forward, Copeland hopes to have better communication within the union to keep members in the loop of everything that goes on.
