  • Union Boss Backs Down

    July 2, 2024

    Every American should have the freedom to work.

    In 2018, the Supreme Court made one of its most influential labor decisions to date – Janus v. AFSCME.

    In Janus, the court ruled that Government employees could not be forced to pay union dues under the First Amendment.

    Unions were not happy. 

    In fact, they still haven’t accepted it.

    Rhonda Younkins, a City of Chicago 911 operator, fought for years to end payments to fat cat IBEW union bosses.

    They refused.

    The union didn’t help Ms. Younkins during contract disputes with her employer. 

    They didn’t help her when she was threatened at work. 

    But when she tried to cancel her dues payment – they JUMPED into action.

    On the sixth anniversary of the Janus decision, and after a protracted legal battle, the union backed down

    The Supreme Court made it perfectly clear – no government employee can be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment.

    All Missourians and all Americans deserve the freedom to work, whether they are government employees or not.
