Illinois Working Together Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision in Janus v. AFSCME
Illinois Working Together Campaign Director Jake Lewis released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Janus v. AFSCME:
"Bruce Rauner has made it crystal clear from Day One that his top priority as governor is to slash wages, undercut worker protections, and gut benefits by attacking the ability of working people to form strong unions.
"While Rauner may think today's decision gets him closer to those ends, he and his special interest friends will never stop our movement to protect working families and build a strong middle class in Illinois."
