Alert: "Right to Work" hearing on Tuesday
On Tuesday, the Indiana General Assembly will resume their attacks on working people as they hold hearings on the possible implementation of a so-called “Right to Work” law and an all out ban on project labor agreements.
The Interim Committee on Employment, which is led and controlled by the Republican majority, will meet on Tuesday, July 26, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. in Statehouse Room 233 for the first of several meetings this summer. At this first session the committee will only take testimony from “invited” guests on RTW. While the general public will not be able to testify at this initial session, we encourage anyone interested in watching the proceedings to join us at the Statehouse on Tuesday.
We are not asking anyone to lay down their tools and we are not calling for a formal protest at this time. However we do want our legislators to know that working Hoosiers from across the state are paying attention and we are as opposed as ever to RTW. (If you do choose to come, please bring appropriate signs opposing RTW so that your opinions will be known.)
We anticipate that the committee will meet at least three times before making its final recommendation to the full General Assembly. As events unfold and future committee meeting dates are announced, we will keep you updated. In the meantime, please contact your working brothers and sisters, your family and friends and all those who care about working families to alert them of this renewed attack. Encourage them to get involved and get informed by signing up for the Indiana AFL-CIO’s e-mail updates, here.
As we did earlier this year, if we stand together we can defeat this radical, corporate funded agenda that is attempting to silence our voices, lower our wages and hurt our futures.
