Washington Report – Feb. 7, 2018

Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: February 8, 2018

With the U.S. Supreme Court scheduled to hear oral arguments for the Janus v. AFSCME case on Feb. 26, NAPO joined with several of our member organizations in filing an amicus curiae brief supporting the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and the right of public sector unions to collect “fair share” fees. Janus v. AFSCME will potentially have a big impact on public sector unions and employee associations (including NAPO members) in those states which currently allow a “closed shop” collective bargaining unit.

NAPO has joined with other national law enforcement organizations to set a joint legislative agenda for National Police Week, with the goal of highlighting and passing a few of the law enforcement community’s priorities. These are priorities that all segments of the law enforcement community agree on – sheriffs, chiefs, and rank-and-file – and they do not encompass all of NAPO’s top legislative and policy priorities. For more on these and other legislative initiatives, please click below on the Feb. 7, 2018 Washington Report.
