The Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME means 5 million government workers in 22 states are no longer forced to pay a political organization to work in public service.
The Supreme Court ruled in Janus v. AFSCME that no government worker can be required to pay money to a government union as a condition of working in public service. This means that government employees who are not union members are no longer required to pay union fees, union dues or “agency fees” at their workplace.
