PRESIDENT VOORHIES: END THE LEGISLATIVE ATTACKS ON ALL HOOSIERS
For Immediate Release: Monday, March 30, 2015
And, now they stubbornly stand by a law that condones discrimination against our own citizens.
Throughout its long history organized labor has always fought for education, fair wages, safe work places and equality. That is why, on behalf of the 300,000 working Hoosiers and the more than 800 local unions affiliated with the Indiana AFL-CIO, we call on the Indiana General Assembly to repeal the discriminatory RFRA or pass the “Fairness for All Hoosiers Act” immediately.
Union members believe a person should be judged on the job they do and not on anything else – and we hope that in November of 2016 all Hoosiers will hold Governor Pence and these legislators to that same standard.”
The Indiana State AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) is a federation of 800 local unions across the state belonging to 50 International Unions. In total, the Indiana State AFL-CIO represents more than 300,000 working Hoosiers.
