The Stakes Are High For State Employees and Correction Employees

Election Day is November 6, 2018. The stakes are higher than ever.

Council 4's legislative and political action program is geared toward defending our pay, benefits and voice on the job -- all of which are under attack by the same ultra-wealthy and corporate special interests that bankrolled the Janus v. AFSCME case, in which the Supreme Court nationalized "Right To Work For Less."

Corporate conservative efforts to eliminate our collective bargaining rights -- state, municipal and private sector -- dominated the 2017-1018 General Assembly. They want to take overtime calculations out of our pensions and ultimately eliminate pensions altogether, among other things. These threats are a direct attack on public safety and law enforcement.

Protecting our collective bargaining rights requires us to "Remember in November." It's critically important to elect candidates who will support our rights and freedoms, and to defeat candidates who want to destroy those same rights and freedoms. 

Please vote for Labor-friendly candidates on Nov. 6.
