The Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME means government workers cannot be required to turn over their pay to a union as a condition of working in public service. Public employees are free to join a union and pay membership dues, or to opt out and not pay dues or fees without fear of losing their job. Public employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement who previously only had a choice between being a dues-paying member or being a non-member paying agency fees now can resign from their union immediately.
If you have requested to stop paying dues or fees to a union, but the union or state won’t heed your request, let us help.
Our litigation partner, Liberty Justice Center, fought with Mark Janus all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to restore his First Amendment rights and the rights of millions of other government employees. They can help you exercise your right to leave the union and stop paying the union. Click here to enter your information in an online form, or call us in Anchorage at 907-334-5853.
