Resolution Congratulating Ohio Labor Community for Repealing Anti-Collective Bargaining Law

Resolution 11-11.20L

WHEREAS, working families across the U.S. have found themselves under relentless assault by Republican elected officials such as Governor Kasich (R-Ohio), Governor Walker (R-Wisconsin) and their corporate backers, and


WHEREAS, the results of the 2010 national elections were wrongly interpreted by the GOP as a license to roll-back hard fought worker protections throughout the U.S. and resulted in numerous state-specific initiatives designed to punish working families, and


WHEREAS, earlier this month, Ohio voters rejected the centerpiece of Governor Kasich's conservative agenda by repealing a law that restricted the right of public employees to bargain collectively.


THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party congratulates the men and women of Ohio's labor community and the We Are Ohio coalition for soundly defeating Governor Kasich's anti collective bargaining initiative; and


BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party will commit itself to an absolute defense of working families and their right to participate in and advocate for candidates and political parties of their choosing here in California.
