AFPF – NJ: It’s National Employee Freedom Week, Make Your Voice Heard

Aug 20, 2018 by AFP

TRENTON, NJ – This week, August 19th-25th, 2018 is designated as National Employee Freedom Week. In the past, this week has been hailed as a time for government union employees to learn more about their rights surrounding union membership. Following the favorable ruling Janus v. AFSCME, Supreme Court Case, Americans for Prosperity Foundation – New Jersey (AFPF-NJ) State Director Erica Jedynak issued the following statement:

“In years past, this week has served as a reminder to all government union employees to learn more about their rights regarding their union membership. Now, thanks to the landmark case Janus v. AFSCME, government union members have the choice to refuse membership, dues and fees. More than one thousand government union members in New Jersey have decided that their union dues are too expensive, and their membership doesn’t adequately represent their needs – so they have opted out. If you’re a New Jersey public employee and are thinking of opting out, you should know that there are resources that may help. AFPF-NJ has proudly partnered with My Pay My Say and urges interested residents to visit or call (833)-33-MyPay to learn more about opting out. For far too long, government union employees’ voices have been silenced and we encourage any interested parties in New Jersey to explore their new-found rights.”


Americans for Prosperity Foundation has proudly partnered with the Mackinac Center’s My Pay My Say education effort to provide resources and educational materials for government union employees who wish to opt out of their union membership.
