Council President Hardin Decries Partisan Supreme Court Decision Eroding Cornerstones of Middle Class America

Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision impacting public sector unions:

“Today’s overtly partisan decision will further erode the important work of organized labor representing millions of American workers,” said Council President Hardin. “Unions matter - representing our police officers, firefighters, snow plow drivers and almost every other function in local government. Labor stands up for the working class, helping families rise up into the middle class, protecting a fair wage for hard work, jobsite safety, benefits like health insurance for families, and the opportunity for millions of workers to learn trades and build careers in public service. While the Court recognized corporations as people and allowed dark money contributions into campaigns, they are failing to recognize the actual hard-working people who are organizing for a better America.
