Democratic members of Congress and union leaders held a press conference on mandatory union fees following the 5-4 Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME which found that states cannot require government workers to pay union fees. The Court ruled that such requirements violate the First Amendment. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called the decision “despicable,” while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the decision “does violence to the First Amendment” and would “diminish the voices of workers.” Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Representative Matt Cartwright (D-PA) spoke about a bill they were introducing to help streamline the collection of union dues. AFSCME President Lee Saunders and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka also spoke about the decision. close
