In Friedrichs Decision, Working People Win, Press Forward

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association:

Today, working people have persevered in the face of another attack on our rights. All over the country working people are showing that we won’t allow wealthy special interests or their politicians to stand in our way to join collectively and make workplaces better all across America. In the face of these attacks we are more committed than ever to ensuring that everyone has the right to speak up together for a better life.
