2018 Janus Decision

June 29, 2018


TO: Air Division Locals 501 – 591


RE: Janus v. AFSCME Council 31


Dear Air Division Member,


As you are aware, organized labor was attacked on Wednesday by an unfair, politically motivated, Supreme Court decision, Janus v. AFSCME Council 31.
In a 5-4 vote, the Court overturned 41 years of established law. The ruling makes “fair share” agency fees in the public sector unconstitutional.
This case only effects workers who are employed by public sector – not private companies – including our carriers. It does not apply to the RLA.
However, we must pay great attention for two reasons. First, we are committed trade unionists and we believe “An injury to one is an injury to all.” Any attack on workers and our unions is unacceptable – and we will fight back and fight forward.
Second, given the anti -union position in this case, we must remain alert. We have to carefully watch the courts - and lawmakers – going forward to fight back attacks on labor, including the RLA.


Stay United Invincible,


Mike Mayes
International Adminstrative Vice President Air Division Director
Transport Workers Union of America
