Jedynak: Case could incite ‘worker freedom’ in NJ

By David Wildstein, February 27 2018 3:10 pm

The state director of Americans for Prosperity (AFP-NJ) says that a U.S. Supreme Court case challenging the right of labor unions to require union membership could prompt teachers and other public employees to drop their union membership.

Oral arguments in Janus v. AFSCME began this week.

“The Janus case could be our lightning in a bottle for worker freedom in New Jersey,” said Erica Jedynak, who runs AFP-NJ.  “We believe a decision for the plaintiff can be the first step in turning around failing labor policies, as it could expand right-to-work protections to all public-sector employees in the entire country, including the Garden State.”

The case was filed by an Illinois state government worker, who opposes collective bargaining policies of his union and wants to stop AFSCME from automatically deducting union fees from his paycheck.
