Continue to Remember Your Work Rights Post-Labor Day

Today marks one week since Labor Day, and as we all head back to work after another weekend, let’s not forget our rights as hard-working citizens.

Here’s a word from National Right to Work President Mark Mix, as written in Washington Times:

Workers in the public sector are building off their victory in Janus v. AFSCME, a 2018 Supreme Court decision that effectively brought Right to Work protections to all government workers by ruling compulsory union membership in the public sector violates the First Amendment.

Even after our win in the Supreme Court, union bosses still try to find loopholes around it such as enforcing “card checks” and “escape periods” on workers.

Chicago educators Ifeoma Nkemdi and Joanne Troesch refused to cave to this union tomfoolery, insisting they could exercise their First Amendment Janus rights at any time. They sued the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago school board demanding the union’s “escape period” scheme be abolished.
