CLC Statement on Metro Budget Decision

 

June 19, 2019

To whom it may concern:

We are deeply disappointed in the decision made at last night’s Metro Council meeting to accept an austerity privatization budget put forth by Mayor Briley over a substitute budget that funded schools, transportation, community centers, raises and step increases for metro employees and teachers.

While this vote is hard to accept,  we are particularly disappointed in the six Metro Council members who, during their private screenings with our affiliate unions, lied to our members’ faces about their intentions to support Nashville’s working families, both Metro employees and our city’s working class who depend on public services such as transportation. Candidates who say one thing to a group of constituents during campaigning, but act in the opposite way when in the Council chambers will not be tolerated. After last night’s vote, we have no choice but to reconsider these six endorsements. Council members who are unable or unwilling to do the right thing when difficult decisions arise do not earn our confidence and will not be supported by our Central Labor Council.

As we move into election season, we are committed to running a robust electoral program to get true champions of working families elected to Metro office, those who have the courage to both talk the talk and walk the walk.

For working families,

Vonda McDaniel

President

Central Labor Council of Nashville and Middle TN
