Galonski stands with Ohio workers, speaks out against GOP anti-worker bills
State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) today issued a statement in support of the Working People’s Day of Action planned for Saturday, February 24 at the Ohio Statehouse. The Ohio march comes on the heels of the introduction of six Republican-sponsored constitutional amendments to implement so-called “right to work” legislation and other workplace restrictions in the Buckeye State.
“Implementing these anti-worker policies is bad for workers, bad for our economy and bad for Ohio. So-called ‘right to work’ means less pay at the end of the day, which makes it hard for working families to get ahead and plan for the future," said Galonski.
Thousands of people will gather in cities across the nation Saturday at similar rallies to make a stand against anti-worker restrictions ahead of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Feb. 26 hearing of Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 – a case that could put right to work restrictions in place for public sector workers across the nation.
