For Ohio’s Future State Director Antonia Webb issued the following statement in response to the the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling against workers and unions in Janus v. AFSCME Council 31.
This case — cheered on by powerful special interests and anti-worker politicians — was an attack on unions and an attack on all working people. At a time when economic inequality and flat wages have left many Ohio families living paycheck to paycheck, we need strong unions now more than ever. Regardless of the Court’s decision, we stand in unbreakable solidarity with unions and working men and women, and we redouble our commitment to fighting back against efforts to weaken our collective voice.
In February, just days before the Supreme Court heard arguments in Janus, thousands of Ohioans from across the state united outside the Ohio Statehouse to speak out against attacks on unions and working people.
