Are you a public Sector Bargaining Unit Member? Did you know that there is a case in the highest court to take away your rights as union members? To make unions weaker, to divide members in public sectors?

The Janus case is a blatantly political and well-funded plot to use the highest court in the land to further rig the economic rules against everyday working people. ~ A Political Effort to Further Rig the Rules Against Working People

It is very important that our members know that there is ONLY strength numbers. If the Janus case passes and members decide to bow out of the Union, you LOSE your bargaining power as a unit. Unions were formed to fight for your rights, make gains in wages, benefits and working conditions for all who are covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Imagine if some members did not understand the value of having a union and decertified, this would leave the remaining members with less power against the greed of employers and less funds for the Unions to fight said greed.
