Statement on Janus from Business Manager Glen Johnson

Statement on Janus from Business Manager Glen Johnson

With today’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME, the U.S. Supreme Court continued its attack on working people by overturning decades of settled law in a direct attempt to weaken the labor movement. Make no mistake, today’s decision is a political attack on the working class that will affect hard-working people for years to come.  The extremists and special interest groups like the Koch Bros. and ALEC have been dividing our working class for far too long.

Local 49 is appalled at this shameful decision and remains fully committed to our bargaining units—now more than ever—to finding ways to build up our union and strengthen the working class.
