Statement of Solidarity with Public Workers of Ohio

We, the members of University of Minnesota Solidarity, extend our solidarity to the public workers Ohio.  We support the protests that you have done, and the protests that are to come against pending legislation attacking the collective bargaining agreements of public workers in all areas except for wages.  Yesterday, the legislation was signed and enacted by the governor of  Ohio.  It is important to note, that in Ohio the bill will cut collective bargaining agreements for police officers and firefighters as well as the rest of the public work sector.  We support organized labor, and therefore believe there are better methods for saving tax money than exploiting public workers.  We look forward to the protests, action, and coalitions ahead in fighting against the current work on students.
