Mayor Andrew J. Ginther Releases Statement Regarding Supreme Court Decision

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther released the following statement regarding Supreme Court decision that impacts public sector unions:

“Once again the U.S. Supreme Court has fallen on the wrong side of history, this time attacking the fabric of public sector unions -- in addition to their attacks on women, New Americans and the LGBTQ community. Working families benefit when unions protect fair wages and safe working conditions. The Janus decision threatens to permanently weaken public sector unions – forcing them to bargain for and represent non-union workers for free. In Columbus, we will do our part to support and encourage union membership and representation for public sector employees. I will be convening labor leaders to discuss this ruling's impact on working families.”
