CSEA President Danny Donohue Says Supreme Court Caved to Greedy Corporate CEOs and the Wealthy
ALBANY, NY (06/27/2018) (readMedia)-- Civil Service Employees Association President Danny Donohue responded to today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 case with the following statement:
"It's outrageous that the Supreme Court caved to greedy corporate CEOs and the wealthy instead of supporting the rights of hardworking Americans.
Let me be clear. This case wasn't about fairness or even free speech. It was just another scheme for the rich to get richer by destroying unions and silencing working people. I can tell you right now it's not going to work.
Our members won't be fooled into giving up everything unions have fought so hard for.
Workers in New York, the most unionized state in the country, know the value strong unions provide workers, families and communities. Our members will stick with our union because unions help workers get better wages and health benefits, improve workplace safety, and protect their pensions.
CSEA has been around for more than a hundred years and we're not going anywhere. Stay Union. Stay Strong!"
