Major government unions lose over 200,000 members after Supreme Court’s workers’ rights ruling

JTN

The top four public labor unions in the U.S. lost more than 200,000 members since the Supreme Court ruled in 2018 that government employees could not be forced to pay a union to keep their job, a new report shows that.

The Commonwealth Foundation released the report, which found that the top four public labor unions – AFT, AFSCME, NEA, and SEIU – lost nearly 219,000 members altogether since the Janus v. AFSCME ruling.

“The Janus decision to end forced unionism for government workers accelerated a long-term decline in membership,” the report said. “In response, government unions are conducting aggressive campaigns to unionize new workers with recent successes in Virginia and Colorado.”

The loss of members, though, has not been as drastic as was predicted by some when the Supreme Court first issued the ruling in 2018. more

  1. We had the Unions come recruiting when I was with the gov’t.
    Because the AOC is excepted service and under the Legislative Branch, rather than Executive, the Architect didn’t have to recognize any Union.

    Still, the Labor crew and Charwomen voted to join the Unions – to which they have to pay but have absolutely NO representation since the Unions aren’t recognized.

    Fukkin morons. The Shop Stewards were inveterate mouth-breathers who could scarcely put three words together to form a sentence.

    Unions are scams which prey on the stupid.

  2. Unions had their place at a certain time in our history. They may still have a place, but like any system, they grew bloated and corrupt.
    I too am amazed that There is only a 200,000 drop in membership.

  3. Hypocrisy 101: They can’t stand a wall on our southern border, but love to put up walls between workers and management!

  4. I was forced to join when I worked for county government and part of the new contract made us an “Agency Shop”. I paid a lower amount so as to pay the representative wages for negotiations but I had no representation if I messed up. When Janus was finally settled , they just gave me the boot without asking.

  5. I worked for a phone company, I was a non-agency member which meant I was reimbursed the per cent of my dues that went to charities and political campaigns. In over twenty years the lowest amount I got back was about $175. Fuck the CWA, socialist pussies
