WA State Republican Party response to Janus v. AFSCME

Posted: Updated:

BELLEVUE, WA - Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) Chairman Caleb Heimlich released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court ruling on Janus v. AFSCME.

"The Supreme Court's decision on Janus v. AFSCME reaffirms that workers should be able to make their own choice, not be forced to pay into big labor's political coffers," said Chairman Heimlich.  "This is incredibly significant, and it is yet another testament to the positive impact the 2016 Republican victory has had on individual liberties in this country. Without the selection of Justice Gorsuch, workers would continue to be unwillingly beholden to powerful union bosses and would not have the freedom to choose."

"Democrats like Jay Inslee, Bob Ferguson, and Frank Chopp who ignored the people and passed SB 6199 to force hard-working Washingtonians to fund their political campaigns should take note," Heimlich continued.
