In this photo from 2011, California teachers hold a candlelight vigil in front of the state Capitol in Sacramento, Calif. to express sympathy with union members in Wisconsin. Powerful public-sector unions are facing another high-profile legal challenge that they say could wipe away millions from their bank accounts and make it tougher for them to survive. A group of California schoolteachers, backed by a conservative group, has asked the Supreme Court to rule that unions representing government workers can't collect fees from those who choose not to join. The case comes as officials in Wisconsin and other states dealing with budged deficits have worked to reduce bargaining rights for public employees.
