Attacks on Unions Continue. Solidarity is Crucial.

On Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Janus vs. AFSCME fair share fee case. The Plaintiffs have ninety days following entry of judgement to file their request for the Supreme Court to take the case. It is possible that the Court could take the case as early as this fall, which means the Court could issue a decision as early as the Spring of 2018. The petitioners of Janus would like to be “free-riders”. They want all the benefits of a contract, salary and pay increases and Health & Welfare benefits without paying a dime to the Association who negotiated on their behalf.
