We Are Missouri announces ‘No on Prop A’ campaign kickoff

February 19, 2018 by admin in Labor News From Our Region with 28 Comments

 

We Are Missouri is kicking off the “No On A” campaign to defeat so-called “right-to-work” with rallies and trainings throughout the state starting Feb. 19. This is an opportunity to join the fight to defeat this phony anti-worker law and find out more about the consequences of so-called “right-to-work” (RTW) for every Missourian.

At this time, the measure is expected to appear on the Aug. 7 election ballot.

CEO’s and anonymous out-of-state donors are pouring millions of dollars into Missouri to promote RTW and its devastating impact on middle-class families. Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and his dark money Super PAC “A New Missouri” are determined to protect this anti-worker legislation at all costs. We won’t win this fight based on money alone.

Our campaign will be won door-to-door and face-to-face by talking to our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about what “right-to-work” will do to them and the impact it will have on working Missourians.

This is your opportunity to join We are Missouri and show Gov. Greitens and his corrupt cronies the people of Missouri are not going to let special interests and corporations drive down our wages and standard of living to pad their pockets or  buy them another vacation home.

Attend one of the following rallies to learn more about the campaign and how you can help.

    My house is in a prime corner location in South St. Louis that has thousands of cars drive by during rush hour traffic. Perfect location for a large sign!!! Would it be possible for you to forward the emails from people who have requested signs to the unions and then they contact the people and drop them off? That would help build the union base as they would have contact info!

  13. adminJuly 3, 2018 at 10:05 amReplyAuthor

    Any union local in your area should have some. You can also contact the We Are MO campaign by emailing Jessica at jessica@wearemo.org. She should be able to provide your with a list of locations where you can get yard signs.

    I would like a larger sign & a couple of window stickers. I live next to a pretty busy highway

  15. LesaJuly 25, 2018 at 9:50 pmReply

    A person has put a yes sticker on a vote no pro a sigh to cover the no. Can that be done legally?

    • adminJuly 26, 2018 at 1:01 pmReplyAuthor

      No. A person tampering with a campaign sign can charged with theft, damage to property and/or trespassing.

      Any union hall near you will have signs. Or you can visit votenoonpropa.org and leave a message on their contact pages. Someone will bring some out to you.
