02272018CM0764DES PLAINES — State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME:

“Throughout our history, unions have fought for the rights of all workers. They have negotiated better salaries and workplace protections, helped establish the minimum wage and set limits on the number of working hours each day. Their efforts created a path for the middle class to prosper.

Today the Supreme Court decided that non-public union members who benefit from organized labor’s bargaining power should not have to contribute to the cost of providing those benefits. This decision will chip away at collective bargaining rights for public sector employees including teachers, firefighters and state workers.

Though the Supreme Court sided with corporate interests, I will continue to fight for workers’ rights.”
