Statement from the OC Labor Federation on Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court Decision

OC Labor federation statement on Janus decision

 ORANGE COUNTY, CA –  The Orange County Labor Federation (OCLF) strongly condemns today’s Supreme Court decision that takes away working people’s freedom to join together in unions to speak up for themselves, families and communities.

Unions are one of the most effective vehicles to move people into the middle class.  We must continue to organize and hold our elected leaders accountable and fight back against efforts to divide us and weaken working people’s strength in numbers. 

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision furthers this administration’s agenda of putting corporate interest over working families. This case is a multi-million dollar effort to rig the economy benefiting a select few.

While this decision negatively impacts working families, the OCLF will continue to be a strong force in Orange County, standing up to those in power who have rigged the economy against working people.  When unions are strong, Orange County is strong.  We won’t allow a court decision to stand in the way of our fight for good jobs, fair pay and dignity at work.

The OCLF and affiliates will hold a press conference tomorrow, June 28 at 10 AM.  The event will be held at the OC Labor Federation located at 309 N. Rampart St. Suite A Orange, CA 92868.
