The Connecticut Senate May 13 sought to impose a counterweight to the Supreme Court’s Janus decision by passing a bill that would help public-sector unions to keep or increase membership, The Connecticut Mirror reported.

The measure, which will now be considered in that state’s House, would prohibit public employers from interfering with employees who want to join or stay in a union, the news site reported.

The Supreme Court’s Janus decision in 2018 gave non-union government workers the ability to stop paying agency fees, weakening public unions’ clout.
