Stop House Bill 1021 - Important Vote - Action Needed

Take Action

Stop House Bill 1021 - Important Vote - Action Needed
Please call 888-640-1338

The politicians in Tallahassee are trying to silence your voice!

The members of the House Appropriations committee in Tallahassee are scheduled to vote on a bill this Monday, March 21 at 12:15 p.m. which would dramatically affect the ability of your union to represent you and make your voice heard.  This bill is one of several union attack bills being jammed through the legislature.

House Bill 1021 specifically targets public sector unions… particularly those that represent public school employees, police officers and fire fighters. 

The bill would strip public sector unions of the right to have a voice in government but still allow groups like the Florida Chamber of Commerce and the big corporations they represent, the right to participate in the political process. 

This is union busting—pure and simple.

At a time when creating jobs should be the main focus of the legislature, the politicians seem focused on destroying the organizations that represent public employees.  They want to be sure that when they do things --like try to tax our pensions-- that we are unable to respond and fight back.

Please call 888-640-1338 and your call will be routed to a legislator on this committee.  Please tell the person that answers the phone:

“I strongly oppose House Bill 1021.  The Legislature should not tell citizens or organizations how to spend our money.”
