STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Supreme Court Janus Decision

“For Los Angeles, a positive, productive relationship between management and labor is essential to effective governance. The Supreme Court's ruling today threatens that balance here in our City — in addition to being bad public policy for our country.

"Today's decision overturns decades of sound legal precedent that supported a stable collective bargaining system for the City workers who deliver our most basic services. In doing so, the Court has harmed the interests of taxpayers who pay our public servants to build infrastructure, clean and pave our streets, keep the lights on, and protect our neighborhoods from crime and disaster." — Mayor Eric Garcetti
