Mary McColl, Executive Director of Actors' Equity Association, the national labor union representing more than 51,000 professional actors and stage managers, has released the following statement after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in Janus v. AFSCME.
“Today, the Supreme Court issued a decision that is a blatant attempt to take away the freedom of working people to join together in Union. Equity stands with our brothers and sisters across the country who are fighting against a system that is rigged in favor of special interests and big corporations. We will organize. We will hold our elected officials accountable. And we will fight back against efforts to divide us. Every working American has had their lives made better by labor unions. We will not rest while the American worker is being attacked.”
