Plan on attending the next scheduled Union meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for May 19th at 7pm
We have a signup sheet at the hall for the Boilermakers Mudhens outing. The game will be July 15th. Ticket price includes ticket and buffet at the ballgame. This is a great opportunity to see your fellow Boilermaker brothers and sisters in a relaxing setting and take in a ball game. Stop in the hall and sign up as soon as possible so we can get an idea how many tickets we will need in advance. Money for tickets will be due by June 30th.
We need to take action:
Protect Ohio’s working people. Protect Unemployment benefits Corporate CEO’S and their allies are pushing extreme legislation written by Big Business to balance Ohio’s unemployment program on the backs of working people. While previous changes to the system have been worked on cooperatively between business and labor. House Bill 394 cuts worker benefits while lowering how much corporations pay. Even though independent experts have made clear that the problem with the system is that corporations aren’t paying their fair share, this bill only goes after the benefits working people have been promised.
This extreme change will hurt not just workers, but Ohio’s economy overall, as unemployment benefits are one of the best ways to counter a recession and prevent families from falling into poverty. Without fair unemployment benefits, the next recession in Ohio will be worse than the last one. Legislators should be passing legislation that will help our economy, not creating new problem and rolling back fair compensation for working people.
CALL YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS AT 1-844-213-8172
TELL THEM TO OPPOSE HB 394 AND PROTECT THE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS PROGRAM
Don’t let corporate CEOS cut unemployment benefits. Tim Barker will be going to Columbus next week to attend meetings on Right to Work and HB 394, contact him if you are interested in coming along and getting involved.
