Dave Yost is Going All the Way to the U.S. Supreme Court to Prevent National Guardsmen from Securing Key Labor Protections
October 12, 2022
Columbus, OH — Dave Yost is so intent on ripping away labor protections from members of Ohio’s National Guard that he’s headed all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s a despicable act of playing politics with the well-being of our servicemembers after members of Ohio’s Army and Air National Guards lodged complaints that the Ohio National Guard was committing unfair labor practices. Rather than push the Ohio National Guard to abide by federal law and heed the ruling of a judge who ruled in favor of the servicemembers, Yost has decided that he’ll head to the highest court in the land to rip away their rights instead.
“Dave Yost’s entire campaign seems to be focused on ripping away fundamental rights from Ohioans. He’s now turned his ire to members of Ohio’s National Guard, deciding to go after their livelihood to score some political points. It’s a disgusting use of taxpayer dollars and our servicemembers deserve better,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
Yost has spent the last four years playing politics with the office of attorney general, pursuing taxpayer-funded lawsuits to further his own political career. And instead of fighting to protect the rights of hard-working Ohioans, he’s been laser-focused on ripping them away – from abortion rights to the rights of Ohio’s servicemembers.
