|We Make Connecticut Happen|
Attorney General To Appeal Rowland Ruling
In its decision, The Court stated, “[i]ncluded in this right to free association is the right of employees to associate in unions.” The Court remanded the case to the Connecticut District Court to “craft appropriate equitable relief.”
Our victory in the courts was an unequivocal defense of our members' constitutional rights at a time when anti-worker politicians like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker have stripped public workers of their bargaining rights.
The Attorney General's decision to take this case to the U.S. Supreme Court will only serve to delay justice while adding to the substantial legal costs already born by Connecticut taxpayers.
Please contact Attorney General Jepsen and urge him to accept the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals decision.
