Janus Case

What is Janus v. AFSCME?

Janus is the culmination of decades of attacks on working people by corporate CEOs, the wealthiest 1% and the politicians that do their bidding to rig the economy in their favor.

 

Who is behind this case?

The National Right to Work Foundation is backing the case. The group is part of a network of extremists funded by corporate CEOs to use the U.S. legal system to rig the rules against everyday working people. Their goal with Janus (as it was in Friedrichs v. CTA) is no secret: they want to use the Supreme Court to take away the freedom of working people to join in strong unions, because unions give workers a powerful voice in speaking up for themselves, their families and their communities. Unions have played a critical role in building and protecting the middle class in America. They provide hard working people economic stability for their families and give them the tools to build a good life, home and education for themselves and their children.
