Zack Space Statement on SCOTUS Ruling in Janus v. AFSCME


Supreme Court rules in favor of plaintiff, striking blow to 5 million public-sector employees nationwide


Former United States Congressman and Democratic nominee for Ohio Auditor of State Zack Space released the following statement last Wednesday morning in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME. The SCOTUS ruling prohibits public-sector unions from charging “fair share” fees from non-union members.


“The Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME is a victory for the wealthy special interests who at every opportunity seek to diminish and derail the organized labor movement. This particular case -- launched by a conservative governor, and decided by the inhabitant of a stolen Supreme Court seat -- proves the extent to which our broken political system is rigged to benefit corporations, the professional political class, and their donors at the expense of working people.


Corporations will stop at nothing to advance their anti-worker agenda, all for the sake of shareholder profit. The outsized influence of corporate interests and their money in our political system is a disgrace to democracy itself, and must be reined-in.


As Auditor of State, I will champion the labor movement, and do everything in my power to ensure that working Ohioans and their families are again represented in Columbus. The forces seeking to rig our democracy to suit their narrow needs will not prevail.”
