Over 30 Officers from the 5 Local Unions that make up the General Committee of Adjustment 875 met at the union offices in Irwindale, CA, over the weekend to discuss the Janus vs AFSCME Supreme Court case and any potential fallout from its decision. The Janus case essentially attempts to make "Right to Work" the law of the land across the entire US.
The General Committee was joined by president of the LA County Federation of Labor Rusty Hicks, SMART General Counsel Kevin Broader, Labor Rights Attorney Peter Dickinson.
“While anti-worker extremists are seeking to divide working people and the ability to have a voice on the job in the Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court case, we will continue doing what we have always done, “said Rusty Hicks. "No court case, no legislation, and no propaganda campaign can stop us from standing together.”
General Chairman Marco Gudino expressed his desire for unity and solidarity during this time no matter what the outcome.
In solidarity we find strength. In strength we find courage. In courage we find victory. In victory we find solidarity. When we are united in solidarity, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
