MyPayMySayRI: It's your paycheck. Union membership is now your choice. Do you know what your newly recognized Janus Rights are?Public employees — state and municipal workers — in Rhode Island and across America had their free speech rights restored by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Janus v. AFSCME case in June 2018. Simply put, as a public servant, you now have the freedom to choose whether to join or contribute money from your paycheck to a union. It’s your pay, therefore it should be your say. The purpose of the MyPayMySayRI public awareness campaign is to inform public employees of your rights and options — so that you can make the best choice for you and your family.

If you’d like to learn about your full rights as a public employee, sign up here to receive regular email updates.

Have your employer and your union properly advised you of the choices you can now make? Did you know that union officials and many political leaders do NOT even want you to be informed of your rights … never mind actually exercise them?

Throwing more money at the severe failures highlighted in this week's RICAS student assessment scores is not the answer, as our state already ranks among the highest spending states per student in the nation. The solution must come from fundamental reforms to Rhode Island education failures.

Public school teachers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts have little or no control over the four-out-of-five of their union dues dollars that support the high salaries and extremist political advocacy of state and national union officials. Conversely, a mere 16%-21% of their hard-earned money is directed to their local unions.

An SEIU postcard mailer obtained by the Center, combined with the fact that legislatively scheduled Home Care Pay Raises have not been implemented, leads to serious questions about whether or not the Raimondo administration and the Services Employees International Union (SEIU) conspired.
