Janus v. AFSCMEWhat is Janus v. AFSCME?

Janus v. AFSCME is a United States Supreme Court case that threatens to overturn the 1977 Abood v. Detroit Board of Education case, which up-held the legality of “Agency” or “Fair Share” fees. The plaintiff is Mark Janus, an Illinois state employee, who claims that paying a fee for union representation is a violation of his First Amendment rights. Mr. Janus is bankrolled by anti-union groups, which includes the National Right to Work Foundation.  Their ultimate goal is to weaken unions because they know that strong unions fight for working people.
