Press Release:

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today released the following statement after the Supreme Court released its opinion on Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is a big win for government workers who, for far too long, have been forced to pay union fees in support of causes they are fundamentally against. Forcing an individual to join a political organization or government union goes against one of the greatest freedoms we are granted as Americans, the right to free speech. Any violation of the First Amendment is counter to the values our nation was founded upon and I applaud today’s monumental decision.”

    The workers of the world struggle to make ends meet and the opponants of unionism keep sending billions to the ultra rich bosses. Look at history. How did middle class wages and more safety come to coal miners, steel workers , auto assembly workers, the men and women who built the Thruway? Collective bargaining. Unions. And those who mask anti worker rulings such as this as freedom are in favor of stagnant wages and crappy health care. Where is that better health care by the way?
