IATSE PRESIDENT LOEB STATEMENT ON JANUS V. AFSCME DECISION

IATSE General Board Endorses Obama 2nd Term

IATSE International President Matthew D. Loeb made the following statement about today’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME:

This terrible decision is a sign of our times and the political mess in which we find ourselves. Soon, all working people, not just those in the public sector, will face the ramifications of the Supreme Court’s actions, in the form of diminished bargaining rights and weaker contracts. 

This is a dark day for all of organized labor, but we can and we must continue to press back against this ongoing assault. We must continue to grow and strengthen our unions through organizing, no matter what the laws are. We didn’t need permission to fight back against the robber barons of the Gilded Age, and we do not need it to fight back against the robber barons of today.
