SPRINGFIELD, IL – Today, the United States Supreme Court dealt a blow to unions and public employees with its decision in Janus v. AFSCME. The decision forces unions to represent and provide service to workers whether or not they pay for that representation.
Conservative gubernatorial candidate Sam McCann made the following statement:
This case is a clear attack on workers’ ability to stand up for better conditions at work, and it all started with Bruce Rauner, who was the original plaintiff in the case.
A true small-government conservative would never advocate for the government forcing a business to provide its services for free, but this just one piece of the anti-worker agenda that Bruce Rauner has used to hold Illinois hostage over the past four years.
Workers in Illinois are calling for a change from policies that weaken their voices at work and shrink their paychecks. Illinois’ working families are not the enemy, but the solution, and they can count on me to give them the respect they deserve.
