Janus decision big victory for free speech of public employees

June 27, 2018, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. State, County, and Municipal Employees:

“The Supreme Court’s decision in Janus is a victory for the free speech of public employees everywhere, who will no longer be compelled to pay union dues should they choose not to. Although this decision affected state and local public employees, the Trump administration should immediately remind federal employees of their liberty to opt out of union membership, providing them with the paperwork so that they can exercise their constitutional rights. The Janus decision is just one more step in draining the swamp as it degrades the stranglehold public employee unions have held over state, local and indeed, federal levels of government.
