The corporate interests behind the JANUS lawsuit will be relentless in trying to further take away our voice but we know how to fight back.
Following the JANUS Supreme Court decision, anti-worker groups are
planning to contact you and your coworkers to encourage you to drop your CWA membership. We’ve seen them use these tactics before, following a previous anti-worker ruling in the public sector. These groups contacted members by phone, showed up outside worksites and went door to door trying to trick us with slick propaganda and promises of “raises” by keeping your union dues.
WHO IS FUNDING THIS?
The corporate interests behind this lawsuit are the same ones funding the campaign to get you to drop your union membership.
WHY DO THEY CARE IF I DROP MY UNION MEMBERSHIP?
They care because they want to weaken our rights at work and lessen our political involvement. The 1% isn’t just attacking our voice, they want to defund the public sector and reduce the services they provide. They want to reduce our wages, attack our benefits and seek to privatize public sector services.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THEY CONTACT ME?
DON’T SIGN ANYTHING. Don’t fill out any of their forms, sign any documents, or give them any information.
ASK WHO THEY ARE
You have the right to ask what organization is trying to lower your wages and take away your benefits.
COLLECT AS MUCH INFORMATION AS YOU CAN
Write down what they tell you, keep any documents they give you and pass them along to your steward. Any information on these groups & their activities is helpful.
NOTIFY YOUR STEWARD
If you are contacted, ask to be removed from their contact list and notify your steward: https://www.cwa4502.org/about-us/
