UI Benefits for Striking Workers




Unemployment benefits to striking workers

Vote NO on HB 1893

The House of Representatives is considering a proposal to extend unemployment benefits to workers who choose to go on strike. These benefits will be socialized across ALL employers, causing thousands of businesses to pick up the costs from another employer or industry.

HB 1893 could come up for a vote in the House of Representatives at any time, so you need to reach out to your lawmakers right away to tell them to oppose this bill.

Providing benefits intended for individuals who become unemployed through no fault of their own to striking workers will tip the balance of contract negotiations in favor of one side, likely extending strikes. This will have long-lasting impacts on the broader economy – especially considering striking workers already have access to their strike fund paid through union dues.
