The US Supreme Court is expected to release a decision in Janus v. AFSCME in June. For the remainder of the term, decisions will be released on Monday mornings at approximately 7am PST. In Janus, the Court is expected to impose so-called “Right to Work” on public employees throughout the nation. This is the culmination of a decades-long legal attack financed by corporate special interests and right-wing billionaires. But we won’t allow a court decision to stand in the way of our fight for better wages, good jobs, and safe workplaces. That’s why on Janus Decision Day, Washington’s workers will show we are more resolved than ever to stick together!

Wear your WPEA blue to work to show that you support public employees’ right to stand together in a union.
Post to Facebook, Twitter, or other social media using the hashtags #FreedomToJoin and #UnionStrong. Let people know why you support unions. Tell your story about how you, your coworkers, or your community have benefited from having a seat at the table to negotiate for better wages and safer workplaces.
If corporate special interests and anti-union politicians are successful in tearing apart our union, we know what will happen next. The politicians will roll us. We’ll see pay cuts and more outsourcing. Our tax code will get even more rigged. This is why it’s more important than ever to raise our voices and stick together. Let’s show them we’re not afraid of their attacks on public employees. Show them that you’re going to keep fighting for better wages, safer jobs, and stronger communities.
