    Default Teamsters Denounce Passage of Destructive Anti-Worker Bills in Kentucky

    (WASHINGTON) – Kentucky Republican state lawmakers pushed through three bills this weekend designed to attack working families by driving down wages and weakening labor unions. Gov. Matt Bevin has already signed the bills into law. The Republican majority in both chambers made these destructive bills a top priority, holding a rare weekend session to push through the controversial legislation while hundreds of working men and women protested in the statehouse.

    House Bill 1 will officially make Kentucky the 27th right-to-work state, undercutting the bargaining power of union workers. House Bill 3 repeals the state’s prevailing wage law that ensured workers on public projects received good pay and benefits. Republican lawmakers also passed ‘paycheck deception’ legislation (SB6), making it more difficult for union members to pay dues to their labor organization.

    “With three strokes of his pen, Gov. Bevin has gutted worker protections in the state of Kentucky,” said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa. “The governor and the state’s Republican state legislators are leading the state down a road to ruin by passing right-to-work. There is no disputing the facts – wages and benefits are significantly lower in right-to-work states than in free bargaining states while poverty rates are higher. Right-to-work laws only enrich corporations while working families are left behind.”

    My biggest fear is NOT the GMO. The next four years of our lobby being routed. A business friendly/non union environment when the dust settles. Look forward to an aggressive push for RTW across the nation. A scabs utopia will remain.

    I sure hope you are wrong but one never knows.. Maybe it is time for some of the unions to rid themselves of the corruption that constantly gives them black eyes in the eyes of the general public.. It is how they are perceived.. When there is corruption it always makes the front page but when the union does something good you rarely hear about it.. Corporate America should look at the Costco model as there is a company that makes tons of money and still pays their employees a livable wage. But it is the greed of Corporate America that spreads lies about organized labor.. As I have stated in the past I have delivered to many Trump construction sites and they were all union jobs.. The only Trup propertyI delivered to that was non union was one of his golf courses in Westchester NY and I had a few deliveries to the kitchen.

    If Trump ever wanted the project to be completed, he went with a Union Contractor. Is that the corruption you speak of?
