Friday marked the end of a multi-year lawsuit over union dues between the Alaska State Employees Association and the Dunleavy administration. In 2019, the ASEA sued the state for what it called "anti-union" activity, citing the governor's administration ordering state employees to opt into union memberships annually, and pointing to the Janus decision. On Friday, five Alaska Supreme Court justices ruled unanimously that the state acted illegally and, they said, that the state was indeed hostile toward unions.
