The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a corporate-driven organization that works behind closed doors to develop laws that serve their funders' interests. The "model legislation" they produce is introduced by state-level lawmakers who assume the ideas as their own. The bills are predictably self-serving: limiting workers' rights, restricting our ability to vote, undercutting safety on the job and more. When ALEC held their spring task force meeting in Oklahoma City in early May, the Steelworkers were there to shed light on this distortion of democracy. Joining with other union members and progressive allies, nearly a thousand people marched and rallied saying "ALEC is NOT OK!"
