Sen. Lindsey M. Williams Criticizes Senate Republicans for Voting Against Workers on International Workers Day

Harrisburg, Pa.May 1, 2024 − Senator Lindsey M. Williams criticized Republican Senators for voting against workers and labor unions today, May Day, which is also known as International Workers Day. The amendment failed by a vote of 27-23, with nearly all Senate Republicans voting against the measure.

Senator Williams offered an amendment to Senate Bill 1109 that would extend unemployment compensation eligibility to striking workers. Historically, only workers experiencing a lockout received unemployment compensation; this legislation extends unemployment eligibility to all work stoppages due to a labor dispute. The language in this amendment is identical to Senator Williams’ Senate Bill 434, which was referred to the Labor and Industry Committee on March 9, 2023. The bill was also introduced last Session. It has yet to receive a hearing or consideration in Committee.

Pittsburgh, Pa. April 26, 2024 − Senator Lindsey M. Williams and Rep. Emily Kinkead joined Allegheny Land Trust (ALT) in celebrating Earth Day this week by announcing the creation of a 67-acre protected, publicly accessible green space in Ross Township.

This new addition expands the existing Lowries Run Slopes Conservation Area and connects directly to Ross Township’s Marion Doulton Green Space, creating a total of 67-acres of protected woodlands.
