Supreme Court rules against unions, hands power to Republicans and corporations: DNC Chairman Tom Perez

We witnessed one of the most blatant and disgraceful examples of union busting in our nation’s history on Wednesday. In a 5-4 decision in Janus v. AFSCME, the conservative justices on the Supreme Court took aim at the heart of public-sector unions in America.

It’s no secret who benefits from this decision. Once again, wealthy corporations and their Republican allies have used the Supreme Court to take away the rights of American workers.

Attacking unions is one of the most powerful tactics in the Republican playbook to enrich their wealthy friends at the expense of working people. In fact, Republicans are so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly 14 months in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice. And that unprecedented obstruction is what ultimately made the difference in the outcome of this case.

Make no mistake: The nomination of Neil Gorsuch was first and foremost about winning the Janus case and taking rights away from workers. 

he Trump administration has only worsened the assault on the labor community. President Donald Trump has failed to follow through on his promises to invest in America’s infrastructure. And just last month, he issued an executive order weakening federal unions by limiting time spent on union duties and charging unions rent.

 

These are the consequences of elections. When Democrats get out to vote, we protect working families. When we don’t, we give Republicans the opportunity to trample on collective bargaining rights and build an economy that works only for the wealthy.

But this goes further than attacks on workers’ rights. We also saw the consequences of losing the 2016 election this month when the Supreme Court decided to allow Ohio to keep purging voters from its rolls — a tactic Republicans will try to replicate across the country to tilt elections in their favor by blocking communities of color from the ballot box.

This is the Republican playbook. They want to make it harder for people to vote, harder for people to organize, harder for people to make their voices heard — because they know that’s the only way they can win.

But this fight is far from over. Public approval for unions is soaring, especially among young people. And Democrats will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers and sisters in the labor movement as they fight for the wages, benefits and livelihoods they deserve.
