Be Aware When Signing Petitions

08-07-2020

Dear UAW brothers and sisters,

We want to make you aware of a dangerous new petition drive has been launched that would
strip Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of her emergency powers and undermine her ability to keep us
safe during the pandemic.

We need all our union brothers and sisters to take action today by REFUSING
TO SIGN.

The anti-union paid operatives gathering signatures will literally say anything
to get you to sign. We’ve received reports that some operatives are claiming this
would help Gov. Whitmer or help add union jobs. This is not accurate.

PLEASE DECLINE TO SIGN.

Cynically named “Unlock Michigan,” this partisan political power grab is being
bankrolled by right-wing, anti-union special interests like Betsy DeVos and huge
wealthy corporations attacking Gov. Whitmer.  Unlock Michigan is attempting to
avoid both disclosure of its special interest donors and a vote of the people. If they
gather enough signatures, this dangerous petition could be approved unilaterally
by Republican politicians in Lansing and will not be able to be vetoed.  

If you see petition gatherers, DO NOT SIGN. Instead, report or record activities
of any petition gatherers under this name and call/text 517-618-9687 or make a
submission here. And, encourage everyone you know not to sign this dangerous
petition.

Gov. Whitmer is doing everything she can to keep Michigan working families
safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and get our economy moving again.
Let’s stand by our governor!

The bottom-line: DECLINE TO SIGN!
