ST. PAUL, Minn. — A weeks-old Supreme Court decision freeing home-based care providers from paying union fair-share fees could cost two major unions tens of millions of dollars annually.

Notices going out in several affected states paint a grim picture for the coffers of Service Employees International Union and American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

“At the request of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), DHS has ceased collecting agency fees, also known as fair-share payments, from Homecare Workers and Personal Support Workers (“Providers”) who are non-members,” states an online notification from the Oregon Department of Human Services.
