RIGHT TO WORK
Governor Kasich and his allies in the Ohio House of Representatives have introduced the so-called Right to Work legislation into the House. Representatives Ron Magg and Kristina Roeghner have introduced bills to to impose this issue on both public and private sector workers. The Ohio FOP stands with our allies in We Are Ohio against this issue. We have been travelling the state to educate members on the devastating impact of this (check www.facebook.com/weareohio to find out where are going to next) and have mailed a flyer to every FOP member we have an address for. Those flyers should be in your mailbox any day if you have not gotten it already. Here is what we need to do to fight back against this extreme attack on workers in Ohio, including the hard working law enforcement officers who belong to the FOP.
- Make sure that you are registered at www.fopohio.org and you like our facebook page at www.facebook.com/fopohio. Next, get your co-workers to do the same. It is important that we can communicate with you about this issue and this is the best way to accomplish that.
- Pull out your cell phone and text WAO to 51555 to receive important updates from We Are Ohio. Like their facebook page (www.facebook.com/weareohio) and check their website as well at www.weareohio.org
- Open the attachment included in this email. It includes a letter for your State Representative and State Senator, asking them to oppose so-called right to work now and in the future. We would like you to fill that out with your name, address, etc... If you do not know who your legislators are, just fill out the form completely and we will fill in the legislator's name. Then, either scan and email it back to Mike Weinman at
or fax it back to Mike at 614-224-5775 and we will deliver all of these letters to your legislators for you.
- Lastly, make sure you are telling your family, friends and neighbors to decline to sign the petitions that are being circulated around Ohio to place a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot to make Ohio a so-called right to work state.
REMEMBER, all this issue does is lower wages, places pensions at risk and increases the chances of workers being killed or injured at work. It does not create jobs....6 out of 10 of the states with the highest unemployment are so-called right to work states. It does remove the voice of workers from the workplace and we need to be ready to fight it as hard as we fought SB 5.
