Behind Janus: Documents Reveal Decade-Long Plot to Kill Public-Sector Unions

“In the past decade, a small group of people working for deep-pocketed corporate interests, conservative think tanks and right-wing foundations have bankrolled a series of lawsuits to end what they call ‘forced unionization.’” This article is an in-depth research piece on the forces behind the Janus case now before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Janus and fair share fees

This study by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) examines the core group of organizations financing Janus v AFSCME. The study traces the origins of the legal challenges and explains how those challenges target public sector unions. The study demonstrates that “challenging fair share fees in the courts appears to be part of a broader billionaire-financed agenda to weaken unions and shift power away from ordinary workers.”

The Misguided Drive to Measure ‘Learning Outcomes’

UndocuAlly Trainings Offered by LRCFT

LRCFT continues its work in training it’s faculty to be UndocuAllys. What is an UndocuAlly? It’s a person who has been trained to take the time to understand the risks undocumented people face, how they are treated differently in the legal system, and how they do not have the same rights as citizens. UndocuAllys also learn how to be visible and how to support our undocumented students. There has already been an UndocuAlly training at ARC this semester (pictured below). LRCFT has upcoming trainings this semester at SCC, FLC, and CRC. For more details about these events, please see our events calendar or our Facebook page.

From our LRCFT President Dean Murakami: Wow, Sacramento City Unified School District "accidently" finds an extra $30 million in their budget. Accident? Really? So why all the fuss about the teachers asking for the distrtict to follow the contract they signed last year? The teachers lower their healthcare coverage so that those savings can be used to reduce class size, and get more services for the students. The district wants to redirect the savings toward their budget deficit. Shows how irresponsible the district is in managing their funds/budget. Support the teachers and their contract!
