Rep. Peters: Janus v. AFSCME Decision Hurts Public Servants

Jun 27, 2018
Press Release

Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released a statement following the 5-4 Supreme Court Janus v. AFSCME decision, upending 40 years of precedent in collective bargaining rights:

“The Supreme Court Janus ruling is a blatant, ideological attack on public servants, who have fought for rights that benefit all workers. It overturns decades of precedent that ensured fair pay and safe workspaces, and creates uncertainty in the more than 20 states that have been handling fee agreements on their own. This is a blow to working families. We will keep fighting to strengthen protections to empower public servants like firefighters, teachers, law enforcement officers, and others across the country.”
