16 NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS Spring Hike 2018 The 695 YWC thanks everyone who joined us on our annual Spring Hike this year! Spirits were high and Stough Canyon Nature Center in full bloom! Janus v AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) On June 27, 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that nonunion members no longer have to pay their "fair share" for union representation in collective bargaining negotiations. The case—Janus v AFSCME will impact public sector unions in twenty-two states and aims to permanently defund organized labor in the United States. In a 5-4 decision, the court rescinded the right of public sector unions to collect administrative fees from non- members, ruling it was inconsistent with the First Amendment. Meaning unions will lose fees from non- members but also lose members who are content with the union's work but do not want to pay for it. Lee Saunders, AFSCME President, called the ruling a "unprecedented and nefarious political attack— designed to further rig the rules against working people."
