Janus v. AFSCME Local 31 is a challenge to a 40-year-old precedent that allows public sector labor unions in non-right to work states to collect “agency” or “fair share” fees from individuals who are part of the bargaining unit but not members of the union. The Supreme Court is expected to overturn that precedent and the agency fee will be eliminated.
Another billionaire-backed attack on working families
This case is another attack by greedy CEOs and their billionaire backed to crush working people and their families. This has been the goal of the right wing and their billionaire backers, to capture the courts and pervert the constitution.
Like all workers, public workers must have a right to come together and negotiate for better wages, working conditions, benefits, retirement security, and safe workplaces.
