From the Leadership
- President’s Message - August 2018
As all of you have hopefully heard by now, on June 27 the U.S. Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in the case of Janus v. AFSCME. It overturned 41 years of established case law by declaring the collection of “fair-share” or “agency shop” fees by public employee unions to be unconstitutional under the First Amendment. This means that nonmembers can no longer be required to cover the costs of collective bargaining, managing grievances and other nonpolitical functions that unions undertake on behalf of all employees regardless of membership status.
- Vice President’s Message - August 2018
In light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Janus case, we want to thank you for your membership. Although we say it often, it’s never enough. You, your association and what you stand for are the reasons why PORAC is the largest statewide organization in the United States. Without your support and your affiliation with PORAC, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish what we do on your behalf in Sacramento. The Board of Directors recognizes the weight of what this means and appreciates the great level of trust that you have in us.
- Treasurer’s Message - August 2018
Last year’s audit is in the wrap-up stages. It appears your PORAC financial team was able to gauge our income and expenses fairly well. When you deduct our unrealized gains and losses on our investments, we ended up with a surplus. By the time you read this article, the Budget Committee will be well on the way toward presenting the proposed 2019 budget to the Board of Directors.
