Litigation following the Janus Employee Freedom Victory: Could you be a Plaintiff?  

As many of you have heard, the Supreme Court ruled on June 27th that the First Amendment prohibits public-sector unions from taking or collecting money from non-union members. The Supreme Court also held that a public-employee union must get “clear and affirmative consent” before taking or diverting money from an employee’s paycheck.

The Supreme Court’s ruling is retroactive, which means that public employees who were forced to pay money to a union before the Supreme Court’s ruling can sue to recover the money that was taken. It also means that the various restrictions unions place on resigning from the union, like narrow opt-out windows, are being challenged. Some unions have already honored resignations from employees after receiving a demand letter.

Numerous lawsuits have already been filed, and Center of the American Experiment has been working with a team of lawyers who are bringing these lawsuits on behalf of public employees at no charge to them.

We are hoping to help recover improperly collected union fees for as many employees as possible and to remove barriers for all employees who wish to exercise their constitutional right to resign union membership.

If you are interested in suing to recover the money that was unconstitutionally taken from you, or to challenge restrictions on your right to resign union membership, please send me an e-mail with the subject line “My Janus Rights” at that includes the following information:

  • Your name and contact information
  • The name of your employer
  • The name of the union in your workplace
  • The county and state where you reside

We are looking for teachers, home health-care providers, state and local government employees, and anyone else whose money was taken, or rights restricted, by a public-employee union.

Please forward this e-mail to anyone you know who might be interested in joining our litigation.

The attorneys are representing employees free of charge, so there will be no cost to you if you decide to proceed. If you have any other questions about the lawsuits, please do not hesitate to ask me.

I look forward to hearing from you or your friends.
