WHAT BENEFITS YOU LOSE & KEEP FOR OPTING OUT OF A UNION- FOR NYC CIVIL SERVANTS.
On June 27, 2018 the US Supreme Court released a landmark decision in Janus v. [AFSCME] American Federation of State, Country, and Municipal Employees, Council 31. The Court ruled in favor of plaintiff Mark Janus, a child support specialist who works for Health Care & Family Services, returning First Amendment rights to all public sector workers. This means that five million public servants in 22 states no longer have to pay a government union as a condition of employment.
After the ruling in Janus v. AFSCME on June 27, 2018, New York should have stopped deducting dues and fees from government employee’ paychecks unless employees have recently authorized such deductions. If you haven’t re-signed a union card since June 27 2018, they should not be deducting dues from your paycheck.
