We strongly condemn the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn 40 years’ worth of prece­dent in the Janus v. AFSCME case by making fair share fees for public sector employees uncon­sti­tu­tional. Today, the Supreme Court ruled against working people and in favor of billion­aire CEOs and corpo­rate interests. 

Nurses and other working people will continue to organize for a fair deal on the job that allows us to negotiate with manage­ment for good wages, decent benefits and safe working condi­tions. We will continue to stand up for the needs of our patients and our ability to give them the best care. 

Standing together, nurses have achieved remark­able victo­ries that lead to safer patient care. We have success­fully fought for safer nurse staffing, rest and meal breaks that allow nurses to step away from the stress and respon­si­bility of providing care, and greater workplace safety. We won’t allow a court decision to stand in the way of our fight for our profes­sion, our patients and our communities.
