UFCW Statement on Janus Decision

Marc Perrone, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCMECouncil 31.

“This decision will lead to increased income inequality and needlessly make it more difficult for every hard-working union family to build a better life.

“Unions like ours offer a true path for people to earn higher pay and high-quality benefits that are affordable.

“While the Supreme Court has chosen to ignore the value unions offer and the good we do, we will never stop proving the incredible good that comes to hard-working men and women when they unite together.”
