Take Action

Congress is facing a once in a generation opportunity to invest in American workers by passing a bipartisan infrastructure package. Passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act means Ohio will get $10 Billion to repair and rebuild our crumbling roads and bridges, over $1 Billion in transportation spending that will improve healthy, sustainable transportation options for tens of thousands of Ohioans. In addition to traditional infrastructure spending, Ohio will also receive $250 million to help deliver high-speed internet to all corners of the state and start building out our Electric Vehicle charging station infrastructure.

Few households in America aren’t struggling with a caregiver crisis during the pandemic. The burden is falling disproportionately on the shoulders of women—and without paid family leave, it has been devastating.

The American Families Plan provides relief to working families and invests in our future. If you support working people and our families, add your name to show your support.

After months of negotiating successor contracts to the Producer-IATSE Basic Agreement, and the Theatrical and Television Motion Picture Area Standards Agreement, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), which represents major film and television production companies, announced it does not intend to make any counteroffer to the IATSE’s most recent proposal.

As educators, school counselors, paraprofessionals, and school support staff, part of their job is ensuring that all of our students — no matter their color, background, or zip code — receive a quality public education rooted in an honest and comprehensive curriculum.

Their ability to do their job is under increasing attack from out of touch politicians and pundits who have no understanding of what is and is not happening in our schools yet seek to sow division and discord. Take action today and tell your legislators to oppose House Bill 322 and 327, which would create an environment of fear in our schools, preventing Ohio students from receiving an honest and accurate education.

HB 322 and HB 327 are dangerous bills that are part of an orchestrated national effort. Similar bills in at least seven states have already banned discussing or teaching concepts about racism and sexism in the U.S., as well as any discussions about conscious and unconscious bias, privilege, discrimination, and oppression.

In 2019, Michigan filed a lawsuit seeking to shut down parts of the Enbridge 5 pipeline that passes under the Straits of Mackinac, waterways that connect Lake Huron and Lake Michigan between the state’s upper and lower peninsulas. Jobs are in jeopardy and the financial viability of the Toledo plant and community are in jeopardy. Losing Line 5 could result not only in lost jobs for Local 912 members, but shuttered restaurants, gas stations, hotels, grocery stores and other businesses in the area around the refinery.

For over a decade, the U.S. Postal Service has been plagued with the onerous burden of pre-funding its retiree health care benefits under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) of 2006. The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) found that the mandate requires the Postal Service to pre-fund its retiree health care benefits more than 50 years in advance, paying for retirement health care for individuals who have not entered the workforce and even for those who have not been born yet. Add your name to tell your Senators to repeal the pre-funding mandate ask them to cosponsor H.R. 695/S. 145, the USPS Fairness Act.
