NLRB Union Dues

January 9, 2020

The National Labor Relations Board held that an employer has no obligation to continue deducting union dues from employee paychecks pursuant to a dues checkoff provision in a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) after the CBA expires.

The NLRB overruled Lincoln Lutheran of Racine, 362 NLRB 1655 (2015), in which the Board held an employer continues to have an obligation to deduct union dues from employee paychecks despite the expiration of a CBA containing a dues checkoff provision on which the deductions were based.

Today’s decision overturns Lincoln Lutheran of Racine, 362 NLRB 1655 (2015), and returns Board precedent to the rule established under Bethlehem Steel, 136 NLRB 1500 (1962).
