So, you think Janus v. AFSCME is simply about the ability of unions to charge a fee to cover collective bargaining costs?
Wisconsin is the case study of what could happen in New York.
Brought by anti-labor forces and funded by the wealthy elite, Janus simply marks the first punch in what will become an all-out assault on public sector unions.
Consider Wisconsin — a state with a strong union movement and rich pro-labor history.
Once Gov. Scott Walker unleashed his attack on public employees — limiting their collective bargaining power — unionized educators watched as their pay plummeted, retirement security diminished, health-insurance premiums soared, seniority and dueprocess protections vanished, and turnover skyrocketed.
You think Janus v. AFSCME is simply about the agency fees?
THE FACT IS: If we don’t value what we have and protect it by everyone paying his or her fair share, we will lose so much more than we will save.
Rise up and protect our voice, our values, our union.
