Action Alert from Rep. Bruce Hanna 4-19-07:
HB 2893 — passed the House, headed for the Senate
House Bill 2893 is a union-backed bill (introduced at the request of the Oregon AFL-CIO) that prohibits employers from talking to their employees about pending legislation that will affect their business operations.
HB 2893 will prevent employers and employees from praying or worshipping together — even if it’s their own choice!
HB 2893 would regulate all communications between employers and employees on religious and political matters, and not just those in the workplace.
This bill specifically targets people of faith in every Oregon workplace; whether they are employers or employees.
