MT. LEBANON, PA — Congressman Conor Lamb released the following statement today following the Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME.
Statement from Congressman Conor Lamb:
“All workers should have the right to join a union — to claim their seat at the table, to negotiate for fair wages and safe working conditions, and to ensure they’re treated with basic dignity and respect. Today’s Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME is the product of wealthy, powerful anti-union extremists who don’t want workers to have a seat at the table and fundamentally believe they don’t deserve one. For years, the forces behind this suit have spent staggering amounts of money trying to undermine workers’ rights, divide working people, weaken unions and limit workers’ ability to exert their strength in numbers.
“They may be celebrating today, but they haven’t won. No Supreme Court decision can divide us. And no amount of money can defeat working people who are united, organized, and determined to demand their seat at the table.”
Congressman Conor Lamb represents Pennsylvania’s 18th district, and is currently running for reelection in Pennsylvania’s newly redrawn 17th district.
