SAINT PAUL, MN – Erin Murphy, DFL-Endorsed candidate for Governor released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled today against working people in Janus v. AFSCME.
“The GOP’s relentless attack on working people has caused enormous damage to our state and country. But this ruling, despite being an attack on the freedom to come together in union and a setback on paper, is going to be different. Union members in Minnesota have used Janus as a call to action, organized more deeply and intensely than ever, and are going to emerge stronger. This is a bad day for working families and public policy, but I stand with those that are making sure it’s the start of a new and more powerful future for organized labor and a movement for working people.”
