CHICAGO (AP) - A 57-year-old quadriplegic man in Chicago says he worries the U.S. Supreme Court ruling about union fees may affect the quality of care he receives from home health care workers.

Four personal assistants visits Michael Grice at his apartment each week to help him bathe and cook. Among his concerns is continuity of care.

The U.S. Supreme Court says public sector unions can’t collect fees from home health care workers who object to being affiliated with a union. It’s a blow to unions who have boosted their ranks by signing up hundreds of thousands of home health care workers.

The lawsuit was brought by a group of home health care workers led by Pamela Harris. She says the ruling means no third party will intrude into care.
