Florida House Passes Union-Busting HB 25

In response to the Florida House voting in favor of union-busting HB 25, President of the Florida AFL-CIO, Mike Williams, issued the following statement:

“No worker in Florida asked for this terrible bill, but House leadership still decided it was good public policy to fast-track stripping our teachers, transit workers, nurses, and other public servants from having a voice on the job.

Working people who voiced their bipartisan disgust to union-busting in our state can no longer trust the Florida House to protect their rights in the workplace.

If the thousands of phone calls, packed committee meetings, and face to face office visits from outraged constituents didn’t send a strong enough message to the special interest lawmakers who supported this bill, the response from workers at the ballot box this November certainly will.”
