Democratic Socialists of Metro Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky stands in solidarity with all teachers & other public employees in Kentucky threatened by the pension cuts in Senate Bill 1. The struggle to maintain retirement pensions is an entirely defensive one, engaged in by workers who are already poorly paid & exhausted by the work & inadequate funding for education provided in the state of Kentucky. Our organization stands firmly against threats to remove what little is provided to already harshly exploited workers in the state of Kentucky. We pledge our material support to any action undertaken by the workers in response to this bill, including any walkouts, work stoppage, or strikes undertaken by Kentucky teachers.

Further, Democratic Socialists of Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky calls on our community to stand in solidarity with local teachers. Kentucky teachers are requesting everyone call 1 (800) 372-7181 to demand legislators vote against the pension cuts. Now is the time for everyone to support teachers to protect their benefits.
