AFL-CIO Rallies Against Issue 2
Members of the Cincinnati AFL-CIO used yesterday’s Labor Day holiday to rally opposition to Issue 2, the fall referendum on Senate Bill 5 where a “no” vote means repealing the law.
Also at the Cincinnati event was Vice President Joe Biden, who called Senate Bill 5 a fight that goes to the heart of the labor movement.
“The other side has declared war on laborâ€™s house and itâ€™s about time we stand up, and understand it for what it is.â€
Vice President Biden called SB5 a scam. Governor Kasich and Republican lawmakers say it will give state and local governments more flexibility.
