URGENT ACTION ALERT: IOWA HOUSE REPUBLICANS ATTACK COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

March 17, 2015

Update: This bill is likely to be debated TODAY (Tuesday, March 17, 2015). Please come to the Capitol today after work!

March 16, 2015

CORRECTION: The amendment (H1093) will make this bill apply to all school district employees and AEA employees. This is still an attack on the collective bargaining rights of many AFSCME members and our brothers and sisters in other Unions. It is still very important that we stand together in solidarity by contacting Representatives and coming to the Capitol tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17th).

Today, Iowa House Republicans unveiled a new attack on collective bargaining and public employees. Their amendment (H1093) would basically do away with binding arbitration for school district and AEA employees.

WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION TO MAKE SURE OUR LEGISLATORS HEAR OUR VOICE ON THIS LEGISLATION. PLEASE HELP US BY:

1) Contacting your representative and telling them that you oppose House File 549, this new amendment (H1093), and any attacks on collective bargaining. You can look up your representative's contact information here. Please make sure to use personal phones/computers/e-mail accounts and to contact your legislators from non-work locations during non-work hours.

2) PLEASE COME TO THE CAPITOL TOMORROW (TUESDAY, MARCH 17th) AFTER WORK. This bill will likely be debated tomorrow and we want a strong crowd to show legislators our support for collective bargaining and our opposition to this legislation. You can meet up with us in the House Gallery.
