Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio Issues Statement on Janus v. AFSCME

SACRAMENTO - Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio (D-Baldwin Park) released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees:

"The U.S. Supreme Court's decision today hurts teachers, police officers, firefighters and public servants in California. This is a direct attack on the middle class. As a former teacher and California Teachers Association member, I know the critical role unions play in negotiating for fair pay and protecting workers. We will not allow hardworking families to be denied an opportunity for good-paying jobs. I look forward to working with the unions and will continue to fight for workers’ rights.” 

The 48th Assembly District is comprised of the cities of Azusa, Baldwin Park, Bradbury, City of Industry, Covina, Duarte, El Monte, Glendora, Irwindale, Monrovia, West Covina, and the San Gabriel Valley unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, including Bassett, Charter Oak, Citrus, East Arcadia, Ramona, Valinda and West La Puente.
