Massachusetts Democrats Reaffirm Support for Working Families and Unions

BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement in the wake of today’s anti-worker ruling by the Supreme Court:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling dealt a blow to working families across the Commonwealth and nation.

“While the Court may be on the wrong side of history, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fighting for working families and the unions they rely on for the good jobs, fair wages, and benefits they deserve. 

“We will continue to be the Party focused on supporting and lifting up everyone – not just the few at the top – and we will continue to stand in solidarity with our union brothers and sisters to strengthen our middle class and ensure all workers have the opportunity to support themselves and their families. 

“Now, more than ever, we are focused on mobilizing for the November election. The recent extremist rulings we’ve seen by the courts prove just how important it is that we make our voices heard at the ballot box.

“While it may seem like an uphill battle, we know that if we remain committed to the fight, we can ensure a brighter future for our communities and the working families of the Commonwealth.”
