Home day care providers want their money back – the “fair share.” But a union that's a defendant in a class action suit says it's all wrong. “SEIU Healthcare has a history of uniting working families to improve their lives,” said union spokesman James Muhammad. “Some of those people are our seniors and our children.”
“My understanding is the union was not providing (the plaintiffs) with benefits,” says lawyer Jacob Huebert, “and that was the reason they didn't want to pay for it.”

Huebert is with a group affiliated with the right-leaning Illinois Policy Institute; both his organization and the IPI deny Muhammad's assertion that they are involved in the suit.
Huebert is looking forward to upcoming U.S. Supreme Court arguments involving California teachers and “fair share,” the money non-dues-paying workers pay for the union's cost of providing the benefits.
