Culinary Workers Union Local 226 Oppose Question 3

The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 has recommended to their 57,000+ members that they vote against Question 3 on the Nevada ballot. Question 3 directs the Legislature to enact laws providing for the establishment of a deregulated system by the year 2023. Question 3 does not set any rate or price structure. The only rationale for Question 3 is to enable its wealthy backers to avoid paying their fair share under the current system.

Seniors, working families and the poor will lose under this new scheme. By promoting a free-for-all, no-rules hunt for customer dollars, companies can simply choose not to serve individual consumers who aren’t profitable. Exposure to the volatile energy market raises the risk of sudden spikes in prices. Question 3 would hurt seniors on fixed incomes and working families struggling to make ends meet.
