Janus in summary

JANUS vs AFSCME...a soon to be decided Supreme Court case...has the potential to DISMANTLE unions nationwide, and if decided for JANUS its impact would be immediate.

The focus of the case is whether or not the employees who choose to be PARTIAL DUES PAYING MEMBERS of a bargaining unit (in the case of the NTU, the teachers aides and clerks), should be REQUIRED TO PAY AT ALL.

If the case determines that they do not, they would still benefit from the regular union services and the contract agreement becoming what is known as "free riders" to the union.

We understand the fiscal decisions that people must make on a daily, monthly and annual basis. However, it must be plain and clear that this case has far less to do with saving you money, than it does about DESTROYING UNIONS.

  • Imagine the absence of your Union if you are brought up on tenure charges, and must pay out of pocket.
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when your current contract ends and you are told to sign a contract or lose your position
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when you are returned from your Leave to a class you have never taught
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when your position gets cut
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when your check is wrong
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when you lose your prep
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when you are evaluated unfairly
  • Imagine the absence of your Union when they decide to take away fringe benefits

and more....

Now more than ever we must remain UNION STRONG & NTUnited
