Friend,

By the end of the month, the Supreme Court will make a decision in Janus v. AFSCME, a case that’ll have a huge impact on working people like us.


Mark Janus, an Illinois state employee, decided he didn’t like paying fees to his union, even though his union is legally obligated to represent him in contract negotiations between the government and state employees.


So Janus sued his union, arguing that he shouldn’t be forced to pay his union anything — while still reaping the benefits the union pays for.


Watch this video to learn more now.




Wealthy CEOs, corporations and right-wing characters like the Koch Brothers immediately jumped in to support Janus, spending millions backing the lawsuit.

These powerful wealthy groups see Janus v. AFSCME as an opportunity for a power grab, a chance to make corporate special interests more powerful and leave working people weaker.


What will happen if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Janus against his union?


Essentially, all workers, regardless of whether they’re union members, will feel the impact. See, this isn’t just an attack on unions themselves, it’s an attack on our ability to join together to push for change at work and level the playing field for the CEOs and the people who put in the work every day like us.


The case has massive implications for working people across the country. Regardless of the Supreme Court’s decision, this fight is far from over. We’re counting on you to join with us in coming days to make sure all our elected leaders hear from us and understand that we value our freedom to join together with our co-workers for a better life.


Here’s a video explaining the case. Check it out, and share it with friends so they know about this right-wing attack on working people.





In solidarity,
