Janus v. American Federation of State County Municipal Employees
The Workers Wake-Up Call of 2018
This recent Supreme Court Anti-Union Decision discrediting the chargeability of “fair share” agency fees from non-consenting employees in a unionized public-sector workplace is now igniting a fresh firestorm of controversy. Heated questions stir up passionate discussions of Labor current events in the Media.
Our Founding Attorney Joseph A. Romano, Esq. had this to say on Janus v AFSCME:
“We must remember this: Any government mandate that potentially weakens any union, public or private is a WAKE-UP CALL. Beware of this current trend to weaken workers’ protections.”
And on that subject of workers’ health and safety, not only as an Attorney but as a history scholar Joe Romano, Esq. has a lot more to say.
“Because History tends to repeat itself…-”
