Chicago Newsroom 10/05/17 PART 2 - Anders Lindall

Published on Oct 5, 2017

Ken Davis is joined by AFSCME’s public affairs director Anders Lindall to discuss Janus vs AFSCME, a significant case to be heard this year by the United Sates Supreme Court. If the Court decides against AFSCME it would allow workers in a unionized public-sector workplace to reject the payment of union “fair-share” fees. Fair share fees are required from workers who are not part of the union, since benefits negotiated by the union accrue to all workers in the unit whether union members or not. The case, strongly advocated by Governor Rauner, seeks to severely limit, if not completely dis-empower, public-sector unionism.
