NLRB soliciting union legal opinions on collecting dues from non-members

Washington Free Beacon via Bill QuickThe National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) put out a call for legal briefs on Wednesday asking labor law scholars to weigh in on whether unions should have the ability to extract dues payments from non-members. The announcement drew immediate criticism from right to work activists.

With, I note, no legislation change to justify the new power. Presumably this is a sue-and-settle scenario where Obama's friends will sue Obama, and Obama will order the government to settle on favorable terms that establish a legal precedent allowing the National Labor Relations Board to compel non-members to pay dues under some BS legal theory. And then that legal precedent will, in theory, be binding on future administrations, because it's a legal settlement rather than a regulatory change.
