National Right To Work Attorney William L. Messenger, who made the successful oral arguments for Mark Janus, provides information about how to exercise Jauns Rights.

Does the Janus Victory Apply to Union Members?

To take advantage of the Supreme Court ruling ending forced fees in the public sector, you must be a nonmember of the union. However, union members have the right to resign their union membership at any time.

If you believe you are a union member and want to resign and take full advantage of your Janus rights not to fund a union, you should send the union member sample letter  to your union and employer demanding that they honor your Janus rights.

If either your resignation or dues deduction revocation is not honored within a few weeks or you receive a negative response to your demand letter, please contact a National Right To Work Legal Defense Foundation staff attorney for advice how to deal with the violation of your First Amendment rights. You can contact us toll free at 1-800-336-3600, or via email to legal@nrtw.org, or by clicking here.

Is There an Organization That Can Help Me Achieve My Janus Rights?

Yes. For five decades, National Right to Work Foundation attorneys have worked in the courts and administrative tribunals to protect and expand the rights of individual employees to refrain from compulsory unionism and forced fees.

The Foundation is the nation’s premier organization exclusively dedicated to providing free legal assistance to employee victims of forced unionism abuse. The Foundation takes no position about how you should exercise your right to join or refrain from joining a union or whether to financially support or refrain from supporting a union.


Even before the U.S. Supreme Court issued its landmark opinion in Janus v. AFSCME, Big Labor Bosses pushed new schemes to bypass the Justices’ Majority Opinion that eliminates public sector forced union fees.
