While this court decision will relate directly to public sector unions,
which are excluded from the Taft-Hartley anti-union law most contracts and
relationships are sort of book-ended by T-H.

T-H prevents unions from establishing benefits for union members only. This
has never been challenged and for good reason, unions always demand to
represent everyone in the "bargaining union", even if they are not in the
union due to T-H itself which can let employees opt out of paying dues to
the union.

An argument also says that if unions were able to negotiate a contract with
a significant payment or benefits for members only, and by contract the
boss has to pay union members more than non-union members, then the "Right
to Work for Less" T-H would quickly become irrelevant.
