2022 legislative Action

This session, politicians backed by anti-union foundations representing the interests of the super-rich and powerful corporations, are pushing legislation like SB 1458/HB 1197. If enacted, this union-busting legislation would negatively impact the very front line workers who have fought to keep our state open and running efficiently. Tell your elected representatives to protect the right to a union and stop the attack on workers' rights by submitting the following letter and adding your input.
