More Limits On Collective Bargaining For State Workers?


AFSCME is objecting to legislation proposed by House Speaker Mike Madigan which would put more limits on public sector collective bargaining. Madigan’s legislation would limit the amount of pay increases that could be included in a state worker contract, and would prevent any bargaining on the size of the workforce or on possible reductions.

 

In testimony before a House committee that considered the bill, AFSCME head Henry Bayer said the union opposes the idea not because it’s looking for a big wage hike, but because it wants to preserve its right to collectively bargaining on basic issues of compensation and working conditions.

 

No vote was taken on the bill… the committee will resume its work on November 26th.
