Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court overturning a decades-old precedent allowing unions to collect fees from nonunion members in the case Janus v. American Federation of State, Country, and Municipal Employees:

“Today’s decision is a big win for dedicated public servants – teachers, police officers, firefighters and government employees – and taxpayers. No one should be forced to use their hard-earned money to join organizations they do not want to support. I applaud this decision, which restores the First Amendment rights of public servants around the country.”
