Recently, I filed a friend-of-the-court brief to the US Supreme Court in Janus v. AFSCME — an important case from which we in California have a lot on the line.
Anti-labor forces are attempting to undermine the ability of unions to negotiate fair wages, workplace safety, paid sick days, health care, and other protections for public employees.
I’m arguing to protect agency fees covering critical union services, such as representation during collective bargaining, which improve workspaces statewide.
Will you join me in having the backs of the tens of thousands of our teachers, firefighters, peace officers, nurses and other workers who provide valuable services for 40 million Californians?
Through collective bargaining, public employees improve our workspaces — securing safer nurse-staffing levels for patients or smaller classroom sizes for students, for example.
Together we can fight against so-called “right to work” antics and protect collective bargaining that serves important interests of the State of California.
