Workers for Opportunity works alongside coalition partners, lawmakers, administrations and other state stakeholders to advance workplace freedom for employees across the country by promoting meaningful and forward-thinking post-Janus labor reform policies anchored by key policy principles.
We envision a workforce that is freed from all compulsion from labor relations, with restored rights to associate with, bargain with, and support whomever employees choose without fear of government retribution.
The Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME, which liberated over 5 million public workers nationwide from forced union dues based on their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and association, marked a monumental step forward for employee freedom. Yet, this decision is just the beginning of the work that must be done to ensure that these rights are respected and the pendulum of public policy reform swings towards greater workplace liberties for all employees across the country.
Let us know!
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that no public employee in the country can be forced to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment. This affirms First Amendment constitutional rights for millions of workers and marked a major victory for workers freedom efforts nationwide. This landmark decision is just the beginning of progress that must be made towards ensuring that the pendulum of public policy continues to swing towards greater employee freedom — and why Workers for Opportunity’s efforts are so important.
