Senator Dodd Issues Statement on Janus Decision

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

SACRAMENTO – Senator Bill Dodd, D-Napa, issued the following statement in reaction to the United States Supreme Court’s ruling in the case of Janus v. AFSCME:

“The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reject reasoned, decades-old precedent is deplorable. It’s undeniable that unions have contributed immensely to the rights enjoyed by all working men and women across our country. While this is an unfortunate hurdle for working families, I am confident that, in spite of this ruling, the labor movement will redouble efforts to build the middle class and preserve the American Dream.”
