“The Supreme Court today in Janus v. AFSCME announced its basic rule of human decency and common sense: consent matters—and our hardworking public-sector workers can no longer be forced to pay for political speech or other activities without their affirmative consent.”

The Buckeye Institute also announced the launch of its WorkersChoose.org website to assist public-sector workers with information about how to notify their unions about whether they would like to consent or not.
