Statement From Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff on Supreme Court Ruling in Janus v. AFSCME

Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision on Janus v. AFSCME, determining that public sector unions can no longer collect fair share dues from employees who opt not to belong to a union—even though the union is required by law to represent workers in union jobs:

“There can be no doubt that unions helped build and create the middle class in this country. Today’s Janus decision by five activist judges rolled back decades of precedents and continues the Republican dream of dismantling worker rights, breaking the backs of the middle class, furthering the economic divide, deepening the financial insecurity felt by too many families and continuing the covert class warfare of Republican megadonors.”
