2018 Conference Toolkit

The documents below are based on the speeches, presentations and workshops at the February 2018 Public Employee Conference.

A case now before the conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court will likely make so-called “right to work” the law for all public employee unions. The case, called Janus versus AFSCME Council 31, means that even though bargaining unit members get many of the benefits of union membership, we cannot make them pay even partial dues.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruling is coming in June 2018. BUT if you and your local’s leadership take the steps recommended in the material we are providing now, you and your local will survive and even improve under this new law.
