From our mailbag, some simple facts about Issue 2 (Senate Bill 5):
- SB 5 weakens collective bargaining rights for police officers, teachers, nurses and prison guards. It takes away their ability to negotiate for health care, retirement, and sick time.
- It makes our communities less safe because police officers and firefighters could lose their ability to negotiate for safer staffing ratios and better equipment.
- It threatens the quality of our schools. SB 5 prohibits school districts from negotiating with teachers for smaller class sizes.
It's time to repeal Senate Bill 5. Vote no on Issue 2!
