Statement from DPO Chair Jeanne Atkins on SCOTUS Decision in Janus v. AFSCME
Today, and every day, Oregon Democrats stand united with our partners in labor.
Today's deeply flawed ruling from the Supreme Court undermines generations of work to create a more equitable and fair society.
Oregon unions, in particular, have led the way on improving working families' quality of life. From paid sick leave to minimum wage to tax fairness, they have been at the forefront of progressive victories across the decades.
We will continue to work in partnership with our brothers and sisters in labor, collectively fighting for union rights and securing a more just and prosperous future for all Oregonians.
