Seizing on wave of collective action, AFL-CIO launches nationwide ad campaign

Washington – In the coming weeks, the Supreme Court is set to decide a case called Janus v. AFSCME Council 31, which threatens to take away the freedom of working people to join together and negotiate for better wages and working conditions.

The far-right conservative majority on the high court is widely expected to rule against AFSCME and, in so doing, impose “right-to-work” conditions on all public-sector employees.

In response to Janus and federal and state-level attacks on working people, the AFL-CIO has launched a major, nationwide print and digital ad campaign calling on working people to join together in the face of continued corporate assaults on the freedom to join together in a union.

An open letter to working people, penned by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, ran in USA Today, the Washington Post and regional newspapers in nine states, including Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Massachusetts.
