Hutchinson: Supreme Court decision against unionized labor
6/27/2018, 4:41 p.m.
State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Chicago Heights) the following statement this morning after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against public sector unions in the Janus v. AFSCME case: “Today’s court decision will have a direct impact on the income, health benefits and overall standard of living for thousands of public workers and their families across our nation. These are workers who care for our children, protect our environment and keep us safe.
“At a time of historic inequity in our economy, this is the latest blow to working families that will have a ripple effect for decades to come. It also shows us that partisan gamesmanship in Washington is continuing to enrich special interests at the expense of working families.”
