CUB Statement on SCOTUS Decision in Janus v. AFSCME

Statement from City Union of Baltimore President Antoinette Ryan-Johnson on the SCOTUS Decision in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31

Today, judicial activists on the Supreme Court sided with corporate interest to weaken public sector unions by significantly reducing funding and creating incentives to erode Union membership with their ruling in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. But, as always, we will stand firm against the headwinds of decades long, anti-union sentiment, because our members know: In unity there is strength.
