Editor's note 6/28/18

AFSCME Council 31 called the U. S. Supreme Court ruling against the union a “blatant political attack,” while the Illinois Policy Institute, crowing over its victory, called the unions “inherently political,” as though IPI is not. In fact, one of the groups supporting the suit said its purpose was to “defund” the labor movement nationwide. While it may shock some to learn that the Supreme Court would involve itself in a political fight, the battle for workers’ rights now moves to the ballot box, where it belongs. As Democrat for governor J. B. Pritzker said in reaction to the ruling: “The fight is far from over.” –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
