Reasons to Allow Public Employee Collective Bargaining
* Fairness for public employees: Private sector employees in North Carolina have bargaining rights, why not public employees? Only North Carolina and Virginia prohibit all their public employees from bargaining with their employers.Sign HOPE's letter to legislators!
* Freedom for state and local governments: Right now state and local government agencies are banned from sitting down and negotiating a contract with their own employees, even if they want to.
* Local solutions: Collective bargaining would allow state and local government agencies to deal with problems specific to their employees.
* Ending Jim Crow injustice: Public employees have been stuck in 1959 with no legal right to negotiate any improvement in their working conditions, and virtually no recourse in the event of a grievance or disciplinary action. Collective bargaining would give public employees a way to work for fairness and respect at work.
Support public employee collective bargaining!
Please ask others to sign before May 26!
