The chairman of the Senate Labor Committee announced Monday that a bill passed by the Iowa House to limit collective bargaining rights is dead for the remainder of the session.
Sen. Wally Horn(D-Cedar Rapids) said that there weren’t enough votes in the Democratically-controlled Senate to bring the bill out of committee. Members of the Republican-controlled Iowa House spent three days last week debatingthe bill, which was ultimately passed Friday on a party line vote.
The bill, House File 525, allowed employees to become “free agents,” able to negotiate their terms of employment directly with employers even in a union shop. The bill also prohibited unions from negotiating on health benefits, retirement or layoffs, and required arbitrators to consider comparisons with non-union workers and the private sector, and whether taxes would be increased.
