Kuster Statement on Supreme Court Decision in Janus v. AFSCME

Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME):

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is an affront to American organized labor and working families in New Hampshire and across the country,” said Kuster. “The dedicated work of labor unions has improved working conditions and protections for all Americans and this misguided ruling, which undoes decades of legal precedent, will undermine ongoing efforts to increase wages, enhance benefits, and make work environments safer. As policies coming from the White House and Republicans in Congress continue to tilt the scales in favor of corporate special interests, it’s as important as ever to defend and strengthen workers’ rights and ensure all Granite Staters and people across the country have the chance to thrive and get ahead.”
