Brothers and Sisters,
The opinion of the United States Supreme Court on the Janus vs AFSCME case was issued this morning.
We will be waiting for the legal opinion of what the opinion says and how it will impact our members.
Unions have played a critical role in building and protecting the middle class in America. They provide hard working people economic stability for their families and give them the tools to build a good life, home and education for themselves and their children.
The CEOs and corporate special interests behind this case simply do not believe that working people should have the same freedoms and opportunities as they do: to negotiate a fair return on our work so that we can provide for ourselves and our families.
For the past 50 years this union has brought together workers from all walks of life with the common goal of a better future.
With the support of our members, it will not matter what the Supreme Court says. Together we will continue the fight for respect and a better future for every working family.
We will send out more information when it becomes available.
