Resources for Local Leaders

The following resources are intended to help MTA local leaders following the passage of a new state law that clarifies the rights of public-sector unions in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court’s anti-union Janus v. AFSCME decision.

The new law, An Act Relative to Collective Bargaining Dues, was enacted on Sept. 19, 2019. It gives public-sector unions the tools they need to identify prospective members and reach out to them to encourage them to become active in their unions.
