"Fair Share" Bills Violate Federal Law

A federal appeals court today upheld the ruling of a district court that the so-called "fair share" legislation adopted in Maryland as part of an effort by unions to use the power of government to attack Walmart violated federal ERISA law. Although only the Maryland legislature had been duped into passing the legislation -- and overriding a gubernatorial veto -- unions had pressed for its adoption in about 30 other states. Such efforts will likely die with this ruling.

The opinion of the court can be found here.
