Biss Please: Dan Biss Voted Against Fire Fighters' Rights To Negotiate Safe Staffing
 
Chicago, IL – This week, the Pritzker campaign is continuing a new series, highlighting where Dan Biss’ campaign rhetoric is at odds with his record. Dan Biss says he’s a proven progressive, but he voted against fire fighters’ rights to negotiate safe staffing levels. Let’s check the record.
 
In 2014, Dan Biss voted against a bill supported by the Illinois AFL-CIO and Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois that helped keep first responders safe. HB 5485 simply clarified existing law that staffing levels were part of collective bargaining, saving fire fighters from having to fight for it in court each time. But Biss once again voted against a commonsense union-supported bill that protected hardworking Illinoisans.
 
“Dan Biss abandoned fire fighters when they needed him to uphold their right to negotiate a key element of workplace safety,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh.“While our first responders risk their lives to keep us safe, Biss turned his back on them when it really mattered.”
