Understanding Janus

Friday, February 2, 2018

To prepare for a National Right to Work law, Suffolk AME in coordination with the UCOMM Media Group and other unions in New York State, will be participating in a Value in Your Union video campaign. Unit leadership throughout AME, like Jim Seitz pictured above, will be hand selecting rank and file members who will explain that if given the option to leave the union, that they understand that going-it-alone is never a good idea. The Janus vs. AFSCME Supreme Court case would put all public employees at risk, decreasing wages and benefits while increasing workplace accidents. This is an important issues to not only Suffolk AME, but to all unions in the United States who have been battling a hostile Washington all year. To learn more about how Janus can hurt our union, please check out UnderstandingJanus.org.  To check out the many videos we will be producing, visit SuffolkAME.org/value. If you would like to participate in this project and add your voice to our union's collective power, please email Ryan McGarry rmcgarry@scame.org
