Dermody comments on anti-union vote by House committee

HARRISBURG, March 18 – Democratic Leader Frank Dermody responded to a vote taken today by the House Labor and Industry Committee advancing a bill to change how public employee unions would be allowed to serve their members. House Bill 785 was introduced just seven days ago and it did not receive a committee hearing before the vote.

“Instead of advancing unnecessary anti-worker bills, I wish my Republican colleagues would direct more attention to raising the minimum wage, ensuring equal pay for equal work, and passing earned sick time for hard-working people in Pennsylvania,” Dermody said.
