THE TRUTH ABOUT RIGHT TO WORK
Brothers and Sisters,

I have attached a flyer that State Rep Daryl Metcalfe has published.
As you can see by his letter, he is for Right To Work Legislation in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, liquor store privatization and no transportation bill. He is in the wrong side of these issues. He is behind these issues just because they are Union related and for no other reason. His pension reform is to put the new public employees into a 401K (glorified savings plan). This has been proven to be the wrong way to pursue this issue.
Commonsense tells you that when you remove the new employees from contributing to the pension funds, just like social security, those who are in the fund will have their benefits reduced or eliminated.

I could go on about what is wrong about his thoughts on these issues, but I just want you all to be aware that the attack on our livelihoods has ramped up.

We, YOU and YOUR SHOPS, need to get involved in these issues as they will effect each of us and our families.


DO NOT THINK THAT IT CAN'T HAPPEN TO ME. RIGHT TO WORK HAS BEEN INTRODUCED TO THIS STATE FOR 30 YEARS AND IT IS STRONGER NOW THAN EVER BEFORE.
IF THIS IS PASSED, YOU WILL SEE YOUR WAGES, WORKPLACE SAFETY AND LIVELIHOODS AS YOU KNOW THEM, SLOWLY BE DIMINISHED. LOOK IT UP FOR YOURSELVES - THE STATES WITH THIS LAW HAVE LOWER WAGE RATES, MORE SAFETY VIOLATIONS, MORE POVERTY, MORE FOLKS ON THE GOVERNMENT DOLES.

IT IS NOT GOOD FOR US AS OPERATING ENGINEERS. WE WILL BE HIT HARD BY THIS.
YOU NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS WITH EVERYONE IN YOUR SHOPS, ESPECIALLY THE NEWER MEMBERS THAT DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS.

MORE TO COME

IN SOLIDARITY,

Keith Thurner
