The former chair of the California Republican Party and author of “The Divided Era” Tom Del Beccaro joined KRON4 Wednesday. 

Del Beccaro weighed in on the Supreme Court dues decision that could deal a financial blow to public-sector unions and public pensions.

Supreme Court Justices struck down an Illinois law that forced non-union workers to pay fees that go to collective bargaining.

The court said mandatory union dues violated first amendment rights.
