Canarycast – Episode 3: When Workers have a Seat at the Table, Everyone Prospers

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown interviews Lee Saunders, President of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and Jeana Campolo, an Ohio AFSCME worker, about the importance of workers having a seat at the table and a voice in the decisions that are made about their lives and their work. They discuss the Supreme Court case Janus vs. AFSCME, which is the latest attempt to chip away at workers’ power in the workplace. If the Supreme Court rules against the union in this case, it will limit workers’ freedom to organize and to advocate for themselves.
