Ladies and Gentleman,
The time has come for us to fight for our jobs or lose all we have accomplished over these many years of Collective Bargaining.
The new Governor wants to destroy the unions by removing the Collective Bargaining Law.
If Senate Bill 5 passes the Ohio Legislature, we will no longer have the right to Collective Bargaining. If that happens, we will all be in great jeopardy. This bill would take away the rights of tens of thousands of AFSCME members to negotiate for wages, health care, sick leave, dental, and other benefits.
That’s right – if this bill passes, the Mayor will be able to simply tell us what we are getting. In fact, they could even cut wages to the current minimum wage law.
Collective Bargaining has worked well in the state of Ohio by eliminating conflict and giving public employees a voice at work.
If the threats, lies and attacks on your very livelihood have not grabbed your attention yet, this needs to be the moment where you pick up the phone and begin to fight back.
We must take action now. Please call your state senator today. Ask them to reject this radical measure that does not have the support of Ohio citizens and will not help Ohioans get back on their feet. Tell them to keep their promise to create jobs, not take away employees' voice on the job.
Tell your state senator to vote NO on Senate Bill 5.Click here to call your state senator now!
