Jan Brewer’s Latest Outrage

By Rebekah Friend, Arizona AFL-CIO (Contact)

To be delivered to: The Arizona State House, The Arizona State Senate, and Governor Jan Brewer

We urge all Arizona lawmakers to stop the attacks on firefighters, teachers, police officers and other hard-working public service workers. Vote NO on SB 1484, 1485, 1486 and 1487.

Taking a page out of the playbooks of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Gov. Jan Brewer and extreme right-wing Arizona lawmakers are pushing a series of bills attacking firefighters, teachers, nurses and other public service workers who work hard to keep our communities safe and strong.

These bills would take away all collective bargaining rights for public service workers, leading to larger class sizes in our schools, more dangerous working conditions for firefighters and police officers and making our communities less safe.

As in Wisconsin and Ohio, these measures are not about balancing Arizona’s budget and are not about jobs. They are about the destructive political agenda right-wing politicians and their corporate funders are pushing across the country to consolidate their power.

NEW goal – We need 10,000 signatures

There are currently 7,784 signatures as of 2/4/12 9:53am
