Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees
For 60 years JNESO has been there to support, protect and fight for YOU — our members. JNESO’s commitment to you will not change because of the Supreme Court Decision in the case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.
The high court overturned a 41-year-old precedent, ruling 5-4 that public employee unions cannot collect fees from non-members to help defray the costs of collective bargaining.
In anticipation of the Janus Supreme Court decision, NJ passed the Workplace Democracy Enhancement Act. (Read the legislation)
JNESO will continue to do all the things we have done before to benefit our members and patients such as: securing millions of dollars in wage increases; fighting for better health benefits; working on legislation to ensure safe staffing ratios; holding employers accountable for their actions; and providing a safe and effective tool for our members to right injustices and foster change.
The power of JNESO, the professional healthcare union, has created safer work environments, improved patient care, and protected the rights of more than 5,000 members in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Change is a part of life, and we adapt our approach but our priority always has been — and always will be — to serve you.
Elfrieda V. Johnson, RNC, JNESO Board President
