Senator Brown: Janus Decision Will Weaken Workers’ Voices and Middle Class in America

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision on the Janus vs. AFSCME case, stating that public-sector unions’ fair share fees, collected from employees who decline to join a union but still benefit from their negotiations, are unconstitutional. The decision will essentially bring “right to work” to public sector workers across America. 

Ohio state Senator Edna Brown (D-Toledo) issued the following statement in response:

“Unions built the middle class and have played an integral role in protecting and supporting people in the workforce for over a century. As a former AFSCME Local 7 member and strong supporter of collective bargaining rights, I know firsthand that unions provide essential safeguards for workers. They ensure that workers are operating under safe conditions and provided fair wages. Without the protection of unions, people risk losing these fundamental rights. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court’s decision weakens unions, weakens workers’ voices and weakens the middle class in America.”
