Unions buy air time to oppose IN Right to Work legislation

Radio and television commercials will begin airing across the state encouraging Hoosiers to contact their state legislators to urge them to oppose the “Right to Work for Less” law being proposed in the Indiana General Assembly.

A series of 30 second television and 60 second radio spots will run in areas where recent polling conducted by the Indiana State AFL-CIO and its partners has shown constituents oppose the measure. 

Titled “Wrong Priorities,” the ads were paid for by a coalition of Indiana State AFL-CIO affiliates and non-affiliated unions.

The Indiana State AFL-CIO is a federation of 800 local unions across the state belonging to 50 International Unions. In total, the Indiana State AFL-CIO represents more than 300,000 working Hoosiers.
