Firefighters, Teachers, Police Speak Out Against FL Chamber

The Fraternal Order of Police, Florida Education Association, and Florida Professional Firefighters spoke out against the chamber at the Capitol Tuesday morning.

The groups say the Florida Chamber of Commerce is releasing a misleading TV ad that says workers are struggling because of union dues being deducted.

The workers say the truth is the low pay by the state and no raises.

Rep. Wayne Taylor, (D) Daytona Beach said, "Our police officers, we trust them to protect us. Our teachers, we trust them to teach our children. Our firefighters, we trust them to take care of us when we're sick or injured. it pains me so that we can give them what they actually deserve."

The groups oppose Senate Bill 830 and the recently passed House Bill 1021 because they say the legislation would radically change how workers are represented on the job.
