One of the country's top liberal labor unions is spending dramatically less on political activities and lobbying in union stronghold Oregon, according to its annual report. The state's Service Employees International Union (SEIU) chapter reported just $1.6 million in political activities and lobbying in its 2019 report, down over $500,000 from 2018. The dramatic fall in political spending reflects the union's struggle to maintain its membership after the Supreme Court banned mandatory fees in the 2018 Janus decision. Dues fell by $2 million in the first year after the ruling.
