Rep. Derek Merrin (R-47th) has proposed a bill that would strip away public employees’ rights to collectively bargain for the number of sick days in their contracts. This unnecessary attack on working people does nothing to benefit Ohio and is a first step to take away our voice on the job.
BILL WOULD LIMIT COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.
By mandating the reduction of sick leave days, the General Assembly would be curtailing what can be collectively bargained. Working people should have the right to speak with one voice and negotiate
OHIOANS ALREADY REJECTED ATTACKS ON WORKERS
In 2011, Ohioans resoundingly rejected previous attacks on working people when we defeated SB 5/Issue 2, but legislators like Merrin insist on pushing these unfair measures. The General Assembly should focus on adequately funding state needs, not going after teachers, nurses, firefighters, police and other public employees.
PUBLIC EMPLOYEES RELY ON FAIR BENEFIT PACKAGES
Sick leave is not a perk. It’s a necessity for working families. It’s important for a healthy workplace and keeps our communities strong.
