Tuesday January 6 was the first day of the 2015 Legislative Session in Frankfort. With the heroin scourge, pension issues and all of the important issues facing Kentuckians, the State Senate reserves Senate Bill 1 for their highest priority bill. This year they made Senate Bill 1, the KY Right-To-Work Bill.

They immediately held readings and the Bill was heard in Committee yesterday. It was voted out of the Senate Labor Committee along party lines with 7 Republicans voting for the Bill and all 3 Democrats voting against. KY AFL-CIO President spoke in Committee against the Bill.

Senate Bill 1, the Kentucky Right-To-Work Bill may be voted on today on the Senate Floor when the Senate convenes at 2:00pm. Democratic Speaker of the House Greg Stumbo stated that the chances for Senate Bill 1 are "slim and none" when sent to the KY House for consideration.

The Senate has a 26 Republican majority to 11 Democrats and may vote on this Bill today or tomorrow before they take a 3 week break to reconvene on February 3.

Please take the time today to contact your State Senator to vote against Senate Bill 1.

Your rights on the job

While you may have legal rights, they don't automatically protect you. You must enforce those rights, and the only meaningful way to do that is through the labor organization of your craft. It is only when you join together with those who are in the same situation as you are, when you join a union, that you have the collective wisdom and economic strength to enforce all of these laws.
