Washington, DC – Marc Perrone, International President of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union [UFCW], is calling for a full repeal of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in response to Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s press conference where he offered to fix the law without providing specifics.
"This law is not about freedom, it purposely legislates discrimination and division," Perrone said in a statement. "It is anti-American, anti-family, and anti-worker. It is a law that cruelly targets men and women, and their families, simply because of who they are. It is fundamentally wrong, it does not belong in Indiana or any state in America, and it must be repealed.
