Statement from Suffolk AME President Daniel C.Levler Regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s Ruling in the Janus v AFSCME Case

 

“Obviously we are not pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision today, but we have been preparing and educating our members for the past year about the right-wing, anti-union, forces that were pushing this case from the beginning. Suffolk AME, along with public sector unions across the State of New York, successfully passed key legislation, signed by Governor Cuomo several months ago, that will mitigate some of the most harmful implications from this decision and more importantly, will continue to protect the rights and benefits we have fought to attain for decades our members know that the victories won after the Constitutional Convention was defeated and the Taylor Law Amendment was passed are a direct result of our political advocacy. Our membership fully understands the consequences of removing themselves from our political advocacy will only result in more wins for large corporations and anti-union special interests groups whose only motive is to reduce our pay and benefits our families depend on.Suffolk County works because we do and Suffolk County AME will continue to vigorously defend our members from unfair labor practices while promoting the invaluable contributions we make to our County each and every day.”
