Union Members Protests at Statehouse

(STATEHOUSE) – THERE WAS HEAVY POLICE PRESENCE IN THE INDIANA STATEHOUSE TUESDAY AS A NUMBER OF UNION MEMBERS RALLIED AND LOBBIED AGAINST SEVERAL BILLS. HUNDREDS CAME TO VOICE OPPOSITION TO LEGISLATION THAT WOULD REDUCE WORKER‘S COMPENSATION, UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AND COLLECTIVE BARGAINING RIGHTS. BOB PALMORE, INTERNATIONAL UNION OF PAINTERS AND ALLIED TRADES, OPPOSES A BILL THAT WOULD CUT WAGES TO THOSE CONTRACTED BY THE STATE. UNION MEMBERS CLAIM A PLAN TO REDUCE ASSISTANCE TO JOBLESS HOOSIERS BY 25 PERCENT WOULD CRIPPLE THE STATE ECONOMY IN MUCH THE SAME WAY.
