UFCW members oppose SB5 because it
- Does nothing to address our jobs crisis, and is just more of the same politics that distracts us from fixing our economy;
- Would take away the bargaining rights of hard-working firefighters, teachers, nurses and all public service workers who make our communities strong; and
- Is bad for taxpayers, since it puts essential services at risk of reductions in quality—and takes away the means for taxpayer accountability and transparency.
On Wednesday, UFCW also joined public employees, union members, elected officials, faith and community leaders, and Reverend Jesse L. Jackson at a rally for all workers, our communities, and our schools. Reverend Jackson and the other speakers gave truly inspirational remarks and energized Columbus workers to continue their fight to protect their rights.
In addition to calling and writing their state representatives and senators, UFCW members across Ohio are also sticking together with public employees by wearing stickers in their workplaces that tell customers to "Stand up for Ohio."
We'll keep on fighting this fight until we win it - in Ohio, and in states around the country where working families are under attack.
