Janus Ruling

The EA would like to provide members with information and updates on recent court rulings and legislation, as well as their anticipated potential impacts on the EA and its members. On June 27, 2018, the United States Supreme Court issued the long-awaited decision in Janus v. American Federation of State County & Municipal Employees. As anticipated, the decision held that agency fee arrangements that require nonmembers to pay a fee to the unions representing their bargaining unit are unconstitutional. On the same day, Governor Brown also signed into law Senate Bill 866, which amends and creates new state law regulating how employers communicate with employees and employee organizations and manage dues and fees.

In light of this recent ruling and legislation, the EA has been developing policies to appropriately address these new and amended requirements. These policies are described in the attached document, and reflect the EA’s current understanding and positions on implementing the new provisions.

For many of you who have been and continue to be EA members, you will continue to enjoy the benefits of membership, including the opportunity to:

  • Help protect members’ rights and working conditions
  • Develop leadership skills through active involvement
  • Learn more about the EA and how the District operates
  • Have a say in the decisions and direction of the EA
  • Meet and develop friendships and community with other EA members through events, committees, and meetings

The EA appreciates the continued support of a strong and active membership, and is always striving to better serve its members and further the goals of the EA. We look forward to continuing to represent your interests, protect your rights, and improve your working conditions.

Please note the EA anticipates that further clarification and interpretation will be forthcoming as organizations across the country begin addressing these changes, and issues, legal or otherwise, begin to arise. The EA understands that this may be an evolving process, and will continue to keep members informed. You may also be receiving communications from the Air District regarding the steps they are taking to comply with the recent ruling and legislation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your EA representatives for further information.

Regards,

EA Board of Directors
