The Olympian says it's time to get clear guidance on Washington's affirmative authorization law.

Who would think that an emotionally charged political squabble over union fees here in Olympia would make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court docket?

It's about to happen because the nine justices have agreed to hear a case on whether public employee unions must get special permission before spending some workers' dues on political causes.

The editorial traces the history of the case before pointing out the main issue.

The core of the issue is whether teachers must say "yes" before the fees are used to further the union's agenda or if the union can spend the fees unless the teachers say "no."

As the Olympian says, this question has "important ramifications" for teachers and other workers nationwide.
