State Politics House Bill 11 (from our 2017 legislative session)

has reared its ugly head again under another name. This year

it calls itself, House Bill 25. This bill has advanced through the

House by 64 to 41 margin. Why are unions keeping close tabs

on this bill and its companion bill, Senate Bill 1036? Because the

passage of this bill will decertify a union with less than a 50%

dues paying membership. At last count of union statistics, NO

public sector union would have passed that mark. It could leave

public employees like ours without collective bargaining power

to negotiate our wages, benefits such as health insurance, and

working conditions. Decertification means a loss of contract,

loss of wages, and loss of at will employment protections. Read
