  1. T.J. Sm ith says:

    PASS THE HR 413 NOW!

  2. Violates States Rights. Fed has no authority to FORCE states to change laws to support Union Bosses

  3. So with that thinking the states should have the right to stomp on the people woring in the trenches every day without even sitting down and talking with them? Attrition is climbing and no one wants to do this job any longer. Keep going down that path and soon you shall see there will be no one left to protect the states or the population. You get what you pay for. Why is virtually every department shorthanded? Why is the standards so low for new recruits? I swore an oath to protect and serve but I didn’t swear an oath to be a second class citizen. Been a peace officer for 19 years and because of the way our retirement is set up I will not be eligible to retire for another 10 years. Even when I do retire there are no retiree COLA’s which will mean as the cost of living increases my retirement will not. 30 years of service will mean nothing to the county leaders unless they are forced to listen and compromise through collective bargaining.

  4. Im a Sgt with the Alexandria Police Dept and the president of the Alexandria police Benevolent association. Im a Cop not a union BOSS!!! I was at this hearing and I must say that I feel much better after hearing this right to work guy speak. He had absolutely no arguement and was very un prepared. All he could do was call us cops names and say talking points. He had no real argument and was embarrased. I guess thats why this bill has bi-partison support with 214 co-sponsors.

    This bill will pass
