Stand with Ohio Workers – Oppose HB 205!
Act Now: Fill out the form below to tell your legislator that you stand with Ohio oil and natural gas workers – not job-killing labor mandates that threaten jobs.
The 71,000 oil and natural gas workers in Ohio pride themselves on what they do each day. They work hard, solve problems, and supply our country with the essential and affordable energy we need to function.
But, as often is the case, when something’s working too well, that’s when the government steps in and mucks things up with needless mandates.
By filling out the form below, the following message may be sent on your behalf:
Let’s make this simple. HB 205 is a big government labor mandate that could:
- make it harder to get the job done
- hurt existing jobs and slow growth by introducing regulations that are expensive to comply with
- jeopardize the competitiveness of one of our state’s most important industries and threaten access to affordable Ohio-made energy.
- Add more to the bottom line, potentially hurting the economy for everyone
If passed, this bill would force petroleum refineries to hire an increasing number of union-affiliated contractors and subcontractors – 65 percent in 2024 and 80 percent in 2025.
And another disappointing wrinkle: The bill doesn’t even require those jobs to go to Ohioans.
This means that hardworking people who won’t or don’t pay dues to union bosses could stand to lose their jobs.
The government needs to get back to work doing their jobs, not telling us HOW and WHO can work at ours.
Act now – tell your legislator to oppose this big government labor mandate bill!
