1/ For decades, public workers have been forced to pay money to support political speech and policy positions with which they disagree... just to keep their jobs.

On this day, three years ago, #SCOTUS affirmed: they have the #1A right to say "no" to their union.
2/ For over 10 yrs, Mark #Janus worked as a child support specialist for IL – When parents weren’t together anymore, he worked to ensure that children received all the financial support available to them. But in order to do it, he was forced to check his #1A rights at the door.
3/ "Serving others has always been a part of who I am. I took pride in my job at the state." says Mark #Janus. But when it came to paying to support the unions' politics and policies "I had no choice, and no voice in the matter." -Mark #Janus #1A

One year ago today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the #Janus case, curtailing the basic rights of public sector employees to unionize and collectively bargain #mapoli
Today, I was proud to join an overwhelming bipartisan majority of my colleagues in the @MA_Senate to protect the rights of #unions to offer membership to new hires and to be compensated for the invaluable representation they offer members #mapoli
#Unions helped build the American middle class and they protect workers and communities from the damaging effects of #incomeinequality, and today, the @MA_Senate stood in solidarity with union members across Massachusetts #mapoli

Prof Heather Marquette (@hamarquette of @iddbirmingham & @DFID_UK Senior Research Fellow for Governance & Conflict) thinks through how to bring 'Serious & Organised Crime' into future 'Development Research'
I’ve been doing research on corruption in #globaldev for well over 20 years. But what some might not know is that I started out my PhD with a proposal to do research on serious & organised crime. SOC in Boston linked to the IRA, to be exact.
My supervisor, the late (much loved & missed) Bob Williams, convinced me that corruption would be just as interesting, but the fieldwork would be safer. I'd picked up interest in development from Dr Anna Dickson & decided to combine the 2. It was a good move.

And yet...

The Public Protection and General Government #nybudget bill was amended. Does this mean the finish line is in sight?
Now let's scroll through the updated #nybudget text...
As expected, the PPGG #nybudget bill includes language "Protecting the Personal Privacy of Union Members." This is in response to the #Janus decision.

Just came off the streets after march and rally with hotel workers of @unitehere and #publicschool teachers @uesf who just earned a pay raise thru SF’s #YesOnG ballot campaign waged with @SFDemocrats @sflabor and @TeamPelosi. People are angry and scared about #Janus.... 1/thread Christine and SF teachers union leaders marching
We marched with hundreds of hotel workers of @unitehere who are in contract negotiations with massively lucrative #SF hotel chains that will not give their workers a contract with fair wages. Message: “One Job Should be Enough” It’s NOT - and #Janus makes their lives harder. 2/ Susie Christine Rafael marching
Both the hotel workers and the teachers said the same thing: Donald Trump’s #SCOTUS sided with corporate bosses over workers, first denying protections against #sexualharassment and today denying voices in the job in #Janus. By design, TRUMP’S COURT IS HURTING WORKING PEOPLE. 3/ Local 2 Hotel Workers Union and Teachers Union leaders speak at SF rally

America’s public sector workers teach and nurture our children, keep us safe, and care for our families. As #union members, they are empowered through collective action to fight for fair wages and work conditions.
The partisan, political decision from the Supreme Court in #Janus will undermine public sector unions’ ability to fight for these basic protections for the 17.3 million public employees they represent.
The Court’s decision continues an assault funded by far-right groups on working people. We must fight back. Joined by my Senate and House colleagues, I’ll be introducing a bill to establish the right of every public sector employee to join a union and bargain collectively.

SCOTUS has made it possible for millions of public-sector workers to get the protections & benefits of collective bargaining without paying their fair share for that representation. Today's decision is a partisan bending of the law and an attack on middle class Americans. #Janus
As Justice Kagan said in her dissent, "The majority has chosen the winners by turning the First Amendment into a sword, and using it against workaday economic and regulatory policy… the First Amendment was meant for better things." #Janus
Congress must now take action to restore fairness and equity for our public-sector unions, which helped build our country and our middle class. Working people should have the right to join together to improve their workplaces and earn wages and benefits that can support a family.

🚨🚨🚨 The Supreme Court just ruled against workers' rights in the Janus v. AFSCME case.

Neil Gorsuch—Trump's SCOTUS appointment—cast the deciding vote. Read about his history of ruling against workers and what this case means for collective bargaining ⬇️ 1/
Trump appointed Gorsuch to the Supreme Court despite his history of ruling against workers and organized labor while he was a lower court judge. 2/
⁉️As a circuit court judge, Gorsuch wrote an opinion claiming that a truck driver deserved to be fired.

The driver's fireable offense? He abandoned his trailer in sub-zero temperatures to avoid *freezing to death* while he waited for help.… 3/

One of the only big opinions left for #SCOTUS to issue is #Janus, where plaintiffs seek to ban security fees for all public unions.

Unions are widely expected to lose. But pay close attention to HOW they lose. The reasoning the Court uses matters a lot.
Let me explain.

The prior case law on this issue is Abood v. Detroit Board of Education. In that ruling, #SCOTUS said security fees are not compelled speech — as long as they don't fund political activity, and unions keep a firewall between bargaining and political campaigning.
In other words, #SCOTUS said if a union is campaigning for a political candidate, that's compelled speech, and workers not in the union can't be made to pay fees for that purpose — BUT if they're using the money to bargain contracts for workers, that's not speech and is allowed.
