In response to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Janus case, which is expected to significantly hurt the ability of public sector unions to organize and represent employees, Democratic State Senate candidate Pete Harckham made the following statement:
This Supreme Court has been unhinged. Today’s ruling eviscerating public sector unions – the culmination of a thinly veiled assault years in the making – is the icing on the cake of weeks worth of decisions that go against both history and our core values. But I have news for anyone who would try to silence working men and women: that’s not gonna happen. One court decision, no matter how wrong, isn’t going to stop workers from standing up for their rights, with me and allies like me with them every step of the way.
