AFSCME Members Protest West Chester Proposal for RTW Ordinance

Yesterday in West Chester AFSCME Local 3975 President Rod Sleiman and member John Sams were among the 113 people who filled the room at a City Council meeting to protest plans for a township “Right-to-Work” ordinance.

“‘Right-to-Work’ is wrong it doesn’t just hurt us, it ends up lowering everyone’s pay and hurts the entire community,” Sleiman said.

AFSCME Local 3975 represents workers at the West Chester Community Service Department who maintain the township’s streets, parks, and highway signs.

“Right-to-work” is WRONG because it does not create jobs, but lowers wages and benefits, and spikes the number of injuries and deaths on the job.
