									we can, we must, we will win!


And now ohio! in one week, tens of thousAnds of workers And their fAmilies hAve mAde history. In the face of
the most aggressive anti-worker bills in modern American history, teachers, janitors, clerks, plumbers,
steelworkers, teamsters and many more have stood together above party lines and pushed union
leaders and politicians where they weren’t willing to go. Rank-and-file workers, students and grassroots
activists have led the way and the establishment has only moved because we fought to get here. With
a vote on the bill coming soon, we have to stick to our guns and keep our eyes on the prize!

The budget crisis is a fraud.                   Ohio has a big budget deficit—but it wasn’t caused by
                                                public workers. State and local governments around
the country are in crisis because Wall Street banks stole our money. And because we’re waging two
trillion-dollar wars. And because the wealthy don’t pay their share. In the past five years, tax cuts for
corporations and the rich have reduced state revenues by $2 billion per year. If Kasich were serious
about our tax problems he’d start by asking the wealthy to “share the pain.” But the Governor and his
friends at the Ohio Chamber of Commerce would rather use the deficit as an excuse to attack unions.

No concessions!                Public workers didn’t create this crisis and we shouldn’t pay for it. It’s
                               the public sector now and the private sector next. Clearly, Kasich and the
Republicans are in the wrong here and public workers don’t need to take yet another pay cut so we can
get screwed a little less. We have the power to put this down without ceding any ground.

Kill the Bill!       This bill is a union-buster, but its more than that. The Republicans are gearing
                     up to attack immigrants, healthcare and public services, which affects union and
non-union workers alike. Stand together in solidarity: you for me and me for you.
The whole world is watching and we know that what happens here will happen across the United
States. For ourselves and each other we need to stay strong and be honest about what we want:
KILL THE BILL!
