Family Child Care Providers Seek Justice From the U.S. Supreme Court

Since 2015, the Freedom Foundation has worked with in-home childcare providers to establish in court that forced union representation is just as unconstitutional as forced union dues.

This lawsuit began working its way through the court system after the Supreme Court ruled in its 2014 decision, Harris v. Quinn, that “partial-public employees” like home-based caregivers and child care providers cannot be forced to pay union dues.

However, the decision did not permit providers to free themselves from unwanted union representation. Miller v. Inslee seeks to change that.

This summer, after the 9th Circuit ruled in favor of unions and against the wishes of childcare providers, Freedom Foundation appealed to the Supreme Court. This video provides an overview.
