NYS Assembly Candidate Anthony Nicodemo Condemns the Supreme Court’s Decision in Janus vs AFSCME

Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that public employees are no longer required to pay agency fees to unions for collective bargaining. Billionaire CEO’s and corporate interest succeeded in manipulating the highest court in the land.
 
 “Today’s decision is a textbook example of union-busting and a direct attack on the middle class. This country was built on the back of organized labor and to attack those institutions is an assault on the foundations that made this country great. ”
 
As President of Greenburgh-North Castle United, Nicodemo has worked closely with NYSUT leadership to combat the possible effects of the Janus decision. His local has had nearly a 100% recommitment rate exhibiting that his members understand the importance of the union.

“The most lasting and dangerous affect of Donald Trump’s victory is his influence on the Supreme Court. Americans will face decisions that will hurt the middle-class and marginalized communities for years to come.”

“As a union president, I understand the immeasurable value these associations bring to employees through the assurance that all are protected regardless of where they come from. It is imperative that we protect our unions to ensure these services continue. Protect our unions, protect our middle-class.”

Nicodemo has made union protections a cornerstone of his platform and believes unions must unite to build more power for all working people.
