Public Employer/Employee Relations Toolkit
Overturning a longstanding precedent, the United States Supreme Court has held in Janus v. AFSCME that public employees may not be compelled to pay mandatory agency fees, or “fair share” fees, to public-sector unions, because such fees violate the First Amendment.
The Janus decision will have a sweeping, nationwide impact on public sector labor unions. The Court’s 5-4 decision immediately affects laws in at least 22 states, including California, that currently allow public sector unions to charge and collect agency or fair share fees.
Lozano Smith is pleased to provide public agencies with an in-depth toolkit including important background information, answers to frequently asked questions, an implementation checklist, templates for communication, and more. Download the toolkit using the button to the right.
