AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders: Washington State Court Decision a Big Win for Working People


AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement in response to a positive ruling in the corporate-backed case, Danielson vs. AFSCME Council 28, which was heard in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington:

“Today’s decision marks a big win against corporate interest groups – the same forces behind the Janus v. AFSCME case – who continue to try and manipulate our nation’s judicial system to rob working people of their freedom to improve their lives. The facts and the law have always been on our side, and despite these repeated attacks, we will never quit fighting to make our communities stronger in Washington and across the country.”
