This note offers a brief history of public sector unions in America and introduces the reader to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and its role as a political player. It then lays the legal foundation on which Knox rests and examines the Knox decision itself. This note concludes that Knox is a significant event in the long-term decline of organized public sector labor, which is bound to dwindle along with unionized labor generally.
