    Gov. Rauner hails US Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME

    ​Gov. Bruce Rauner today hailed the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME as a major victory for public sector workers' First Amendment rights to free speech and association and a victory for taxpayers who must bear the high cost of government. The Governor said that the decision will help combat the conflicts of interest created when government union leaders negotiate with politicians they help elect. Prior to today's ruling, paying union fees was compulsory whether a government worker was a union member or not, and whether a worker agreed with the union's political agenda or not. The fees average more than 80% of full union dues. The high court's decision means state workers can no longer be forced to pay union fees if they choose not to be a member of the union.
