As the Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the case of Janus vs. AFSCME, about 75 union members and their supporters gathered at Somerville City Hall to say that regardless of any Supreme Court decision they will remain united because Somerville's workers need good, union jobs more than ever. "The greedy billionaires and CEOs behind this case don't want us to be united," said Ed Halloran, President of the Somerville Municipal Employees Association. "They want to weaken our power, divide and conquer, so they can continue rigging the system against working people as they've been doing for decades. But we plan to stick together in our union no matter what. These are the same people who demonize union members simply because we have the right to negotiate safe working conditions and fair wages. This is an attack on the quality public services we provide."
