Our freedom to join together in strong unions to speak up for ourselves, our families and our communities was diminished today with the Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME. Despite this decision, however, we will continue to fight for what’s right for the students and faculty of our community colleges.
We have an important mission in CCA. We have advocated strongly for our open-access community college system, for faculty rights, and for the protection of pension plans. There are very powerful forces pushing back hard to silence our voices through coordinated and well-funded media campaigns and legal strategies. We will not be silenced.
-CCA President, Lynette Nyaggah
