Statement

Illinois Education Association Minooka Region issued the following announcement on Nov. 8.

The Illinois Education Association (IEA) released the following statement regarding the Seventh Circuit Court’s decision in the Mooney vs. IEA case. In light of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Janus v. AFSCME case, Stacey Mooney had been seeking to recoup fair share fees paid to the IEA. On Tuesday, the court rejected Mooney’s claim.

The following is attributable to IEA President Kathi Griffin:

“The IEA is gratified that the Seventh Circuit has joined the unanimous view of more than 15 courts that have considered this issue, and in doing so have sided with educators in Illinois. These legal attacks are without merit and are solely focused on taking away the freedoms of working people to have a collective voice in the workplace. The court got it right. We will continue to fight to protect the rights of our union.”
