One of the nation’s most powerful labor unions is rallying supporters to oppose Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

On Friday, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) began circulating a petition online for its allies to send to their home state lawmakers. The union letter calls Kavanaugh a “narrow-minded extremist” and accuses the D.C. Circuit Court judge of undermining workers’ rights and opposing abortion.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Kavanaugh is a narrow-minded extremist who will chip away at our rights in the workplace, the doctor’s office and the ballot box,” the letter says. “If Kavanaugh is confirmed he could decide to take away the things that our families hold dear: healthcare, voting rights, union rights, women’s reproductive health, human rights for immigrants, LGBTQ rights, clean air to breathe, and clean water to drink.”

SEIU is one of the largest public sector labor agencies in the country boasting nearly 2 million members, but it could see those numbers dwindle after the Supreme Court declared forced unionism in government agencies unconstitutional in June. The Court ruled 5-4 in Janus v. AFSCME that agencies could not force public sector workers to pay union dues or agency fees as a condition of employment. The union had more than 100,000 agency fee payers—about 5 percent of all workers represented by SEIU—in 2017, according to federal labor records. Those workers now have the ability to sever ties completely.
