Public Sector Unions Under Attack

Public sector unions and their rights to collective bargaining are under attack in our surrounding states! Read about Wisconsin and Ohio.

Wisconsin's governor sent a letter to all public employees announcing his proposed bill that can be described in no other terms but "union busting".

In reaction to the Wisconsin governor's proposals, testimony was given and a rally was held at Wisconsin's State Capital today. Here is the link to an article describing the protests held at Wisconsin's State Capital today.

In Ohio a Senate bill, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Shannon Jones, would eliminate collective bargaining rights and salary schedules for public employees across the state. GOP Gov. John Kasich has expressed his support for the bill in concept, but he has also signaled he may bring forth his own plan that could go even further.

Union members packed Ohio's State House today to protest the proposed changes.
