Illinois Policy Institute issued the following announcement on June 27.
The U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in Janus v. AFSCME, confirming that forced union fees are unconstitutional.
Illinois Policy Institute CEO John Tillman released the following statement:
“Workers’ rights were restored today because of two people: Mark Janus and Bruce Rauner.
“First, I’d like to thank Gov. Bruce Rauner for having the vision, the leadership and the courage to initiate this case in 2015. He took tremendous risk and criticism for advancing the simple idea that workers should be free to define their relationship with a government union.
“Most importantly, I want to thank Mark Janus. Without a plaintiff, you have no case. We are very proud that Mark Janus chose our litigation team at the Liberty Justice Center to represent him. We thank Mark for his courage and for his commitment to worker freedom. Mark has earned the admiration of millions of people all over the country who simply wanted their free speech rights protected.”
