What is the difference between "Fair Share," "Agency Shop" and "Agency Fee?"

There is no difference.  Fair share, agency shop and agency fee are the same thing. PERB has adopted  the phase "Agency Fee" to refer to a represented employee's obligation to pay representational costs to the union where the employee declines to become a dues paying member of the union.
