“Today’s ruling is a win for worker freedom. Union membership works for some people, but doesn’t for others. Public workers can now make that decision for themselves, and won’t be forced to fund political speech that violates their First Amendment rights.
Republicans passed legislation this year that would immediately bring Minnesota laws into compliance with the Janus decision, but Gov. Dayton refused to consider it. In lieu of that legislation, I’m calling on Governor Dayton to immediately inform public sector workers of his administration’s plan to comply with the Supreme Court decision. Workers need to be informed of their rights, including the right to receive their full paycheck without forced collection of union dues.”
