Associated Press
Published:
SEATTLE — Washington labor, government and business officials are still reading and analyzing the dense U.S. Supreme Court ruling this week on union dues for home health care workers. But many believe Harris v. Quinn will have implications for Washington state.
That impact could go well beyond the 35,000 union represented home health care workers in Washington and also affect the thousands who care for children with disabilities in their homes as well as medical interpreters.
According to Washington’s Public Employment Relations Commission, all three groups negotiate their rates with the state in a similar way.
The commission’s executive director says they need to determine if they have to create a new process in the wake of the Supreme Court decision.
The Washington attorney general’s office also is studying the decision.
