It is time to take action.
We are asking all IBEW Local 21 members and retirees to attend the Rallies for Fairness that will take place from December 5th – December 10th as well as the Village of Lincolnshire Board Meeting on December 14th.
The Village of Lincolnshire is planning to take final action on a proposal to establish the Village as a Right to Work Zone. Earlier this spring, the Village passed Governor Rauner’s Turnaround Agenda. Lincolnshire is a home rule community, the Board’s action could have far reaching implications for all working families.
Stand up For Fairness
Governor Rauner is holding the state budget hostage to his “turnaround” agenda, harming Illinois citizens and jeopardizing vital services.
He’s pushing legislators to strip collective bargaining rights from teachers, police officers, firefighters and other public employees—and to wipe out prevailing wage and project labor agreements for workers in the construction trades. His agenda would drive down the income of working families and weaken all of organized labor in our State.
The governor is also holding hostage tens of thousands of state employees, trying to force a strike by insisting on extreme demands in union contract negotiations.
It’s time to come together to tell Governor Rauner: Illinois residents need the vital public services that state and local governments provide. And all workers deserve a voice on the job, family-supporting wages, affordable health care and dignity in retirement.
Join us at the Rallies for Fairness and share this information with your coworkers by printing out a Stand up for Fairness bulletin board posting by clicking here and Village of Lincolnshire notice here.
