Chairman Crowley Statement on Janus vs. AFSCME Council 31

February 26, 2018

(Washington, D.C.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States heard oral arguments in the case of Janus vs. AFSCME Council 31:

“American workers should enjoy the freedom and fundamental right to form a strong union and bargain collectively for better pay, better benefits, and the safest working conditions. In deciding this case, the Supreme Court will have the opportunity to affirm and protect this fundamental right against special interests and their efforts to weaken workers’ rights and the unions that fight for them. I hope the court will stand on the side of the millions of hardworking Americans and their families.”
