Pocan Statement on Supreme Court Holding Oral Arguments for Janus v. AFSCME
"We should strengthen, not weaken, public sector unions..."
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02), a member of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court holding oral arguments in the case of Janus v. AFSCME Council 31.
“During oral arguments at the Supreme Court, special interests and conservative mega-donors continued their well-established, coordinated attacks on unions and American workers. Despite pledging to support workers during his campaign, President Trump has joined with dark money conservative groups to attack American workers and overturn the law.
“Public sector unions have helped lead America’s labor movement, fighting for stronger wages and health care, while standing up for workers’ rights and a secure retirement. We should strengthen, not weaken, public sector unions and the Supreme Court must affirm their role as the foundation of a strong middle class and the ladder to economic opportunity.”
