During the 2015 Legislative Session, working families were attacked over and over in what in has been described by many as the most egregious assault on workers in our state’s history.
To remind workers which side individual legislators stood, the WV AFL-CIO is introducing a new weekly communication called the “Anti-Worker Roll Call Vote of the Week.”
In the new weekly communication, one specific, anti-worker vote will be identified, explained and the actual roll call vote then posted on the WV AFL-CIO webpage and Facebook account as well as shared via Twitter. The WV AFL-CIO will announce a new “Anti-Worker Roll Call Vote of the Week” each week through the month of December.
Feel free to copy, post, re-tweet or share so the message is delivered as broadly as possible!
Bill Number: Senate Bill 357
Description: A rollback in state mine safety laws.
Date:February 26, 2015
Voting Body: 100-member House of Delegates
The Vote: An amendment to include an “economic impact study” in the bill. Even though the new Republican leadership touted “economic impact studies” for numerous issues at the beginning of the session, this amendment was voted down. It’s important to note that by the end of the session, the Republican leadership only called for one legislative issue to undergo an “economic impact study” -- so-called “Right to Work.”
A “No” vote is Anti-Worker a “Yes” vote is Pro-Worker.

Voting Body: 34-member Senate
The Vote: A motion to reject the bill, which at that point was a total repeal of the state Prevailing Wage a “No ” vote is Anti-Worker a “Yes ” vote is Pro-Worker.
