In Ohio, UFCW and RWDSU Join Public Employees to Rock the State of the State Address

Today, Governor Kasich gave his first State of the State address in the Ohio Statehouse. Outside, workers came together to send a message to the Governor that his attacks on working families are not what Ohioans want and not what we need.

UFCW and RWDSU were out in force, standing with public employees in the fight against SB5, the harmful anti-worker legislation being pushed by Governor Kasich and Republican State Legislators. UFCW Local 1059 members and Kroger employees Judge Harris and Jason Taylor spoke at the rally, sharing their words of support with public employees and letting the Governor know that working families in Ohio won't stand for his attacks.

After the rally, UFCW Local 1059 members used the rest of their day off to knock on doors in State Representative Anne Gonzales's district, talking to fellow Ohioans about SB5 and the damage it would do to the state's working families, and urging them to call Representative Gonzales to voice their opposition to the bill.

If you're in Ohio, you can help by calling your state representative right now at (888)218-5931 and sending an email to voice your opposition to SB5.
