Hoosiers: ACT NOW to Stop the Attacks on Indiana's Workers!
In this still-struggling economy, Indiana needs one thing: more good jobs. But instead of focusing on finding ways to create good jobs, politicians have turned their attention to political payback to the corporate CEOs who spent more than $1 billion on the November elections. We need Indiana residents to ACT NOW.
A "Right to Work" bill is slated for a hearing on Monday morning in Indiana. Earlier this week, several anti-worker bills moved out of committee at the Indiana state house (see below). More anti-worker bills are expected to be rolled out in the coming weeks.
We need your URGENT ACTION to let our politicians know that we won't let them roll back the clock on workers' rights.
- Send a message to your legislators
- Can you come to the State House next week? Help recruit religious leaders? Talk to the media? Offer someone a couch to sleep on in Indianapolis? Please let us know how you can help.
Take action and urge your representatives to OPPOSE these anti-worker bills:
- Amendments to HB 1585 that prohibit state employee collective bargaining as a matter of law, criminalize the encouragement or participation in strikes by public employees, and prohibit local and school employers from deducting voluntarily elected union dues from paychecks
- HB 1216 , which prohibits project labor agreements, exempts from common wage requirements projects under $1,000,000, and exempts public works projects by schools of state educational institutions
- HB 1203, which would prevent employers from recognizing a union once a majority sign authorization cards. This legislation, deceptively named "Save Our Secret Ballot", is also expected to be introduced as an amendment ot the State constitution
- HB 1538, which prohibits local units of government from setting a minimum wage higher than the state minimum wage
- So-called "Right to Work" legislation that makes it easier for companies to lower wages and cut benefits
Thank you for taking action at this critical time for workers.
