Call To Action: Tell your Rep to Vote No on HB 285

Tomorrow at 2pm the House Business and Labor Committee will be hearing HB 285 an anti-union bill. HB 285 has been flagged by our union allies because it places unnecessary regulations on labor unions and interferes in how workers use their paychecks.

Here is what you can do to help:

HB 285 is scheduled to be heard tomorrow, January 26th, by the House Business and Labor Committee in Room 445 of the State Capitol at 2:00 PM. Please attend and be ready to leave a comment voicing your disapproval of the bill.

Hello [Representative Name],

 

HB 285 is being heard Jan 26th at 2pm by the House Business and Labor Committee. I, as your constituent, would like to express my disapproval and urge you to vote ‘No’ on this bill.

 

HB 285 is the government interfering in how workers' paychecks by preventing them from automatically deducting union dues. No other types of deductions are prohibited in Utah. This bill is a classic example of government overreach and infringes on a worker's right to spend their money how they wish. Again, I urge you to vote ‘No’ on HB 285.

 

Sincerely,

 

[Your Name]
