Wednesday, September 28, 2022

HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's four largest government unions lost almost 219,000 members combined after the U.S. Supreme Court ended forced unionism for government workers in Janus v. AFSCME (2018), according to a new report released today by the Commonwealth Foundation.

Key Points: 
  • The unions lost nearly 380,000 fee-paying members immediately following the Janus, with a "net loss of nearly 219,000 union members between 2017 (right before the Janus ruling) and 2021," according to the report.
  • "Though the major national government unions have re-gained ground, they are still working against an historic decline lately exacerbated by Janus."
  • Union executives and pro-union lawmakers have erected new barriers in several states to make it difficult for government workers to decline membership, and they are mounting "aggressive campaigns to unionize new workers."
  • "Even with the Supreme Court's Janus ruling, government union labor executives and their allies in government are not going to make it easy for public servants to break free of union control," said Commonwealth Foundation Executive Vice President Jennifer Stefano.
