02272018CM0595 mCHICAGO – State Senator John G. Mulroe (D-Chicago) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Janus v. AFSCME:

“Today the Supreme Court dealt a major blow to not only organized labor, but also to anyone who works within the public sector, including teachers, first responders and state workers. Labor unions do not only negotiate on behalf of their members, but also for non-members within the organization. The Supreme Court’s decision today will cripple public sector workers’ rights across the nation.

I am disappointed with this decision and with Gov. Rauner’s involvement in this case to dismantle collective bargaining rights.

I remain grateful for the role that labor unions have played in our nation’s history and will stand by them as they weather this storm.”
