AFSCME Florida Statement on SB 256 Passage

Statement from AFSCME Florida President and International VP Vicki Hall on anti-worker SB 256 passing in the state Senate: 

"The hard-working, dedicated public service workers who make Florida happen will continue to advocate for our freedom on the job, for our right to safe working conditions and the respect and dignity that accompanies the power of collective bargaining. It is AFSCME members and other hard-working men and women who care for our sick, protect our vulnerable communities, keep our streets clean, our water safe to drink and so much more. We deserve the same rights as others to collectively speak up for a safe place to work, decent pay and fair benefits. We will not be silenced and look forward to engaging with State Representatives about why they must vote no."
