Right-wing billionaires like the Koch Brothers are pushing a Supreme Court case called Friedrichs v California Teachers Association that could make it much more difficult for public service workers to come together, speak up, and get ahead.
This could have devastating effects on teachers, nurses, fire fighters, bus drives and all public workers to provide us the necessary services we rely on across the country.
You may have joined me and thousands of Ohio’s working people a few months ago in Columbus as we rallied against the ALEC agenda to attack working people and give even more power and tax breaks to billonaire corporate CEO’s
In a nutshell, Friedrichs seeks to eliminate something called fair share fees, which nonmembers contribute towards the cost of negotiating and enforcing strong contracts that make it easier to support our families. As all public employees enjoy the benefits, job security and other protections our union negotiates, it is only fair that all employees contribute to the cost of securing those benefits and protections.
It should be no surprise that this effort to weaken public sector unions is being funded by corporate CEOs and wealthy special interests.
Enough is enough! We need to tell America what’s happening. Sign this petition telling the Center for Individual Rights to stop attacking working people.
Giving working people the ability to speak up together through their unions leads to a balanced economy and fair wages for all workers. When we speak up together with one voice we get better pay, better benefits, and ensure a better quality of life for all our families.
