Iowa Constitutional Right To Work Law advances
Rod Boshart has the story in the GlobeGazette.com:
Republicans seeking to amend Iowa’s Constitution with right-to-work protection weathered a stormy subcommittee meeting Wednesday by steering through strong union opposition.
House Joint Resolution 1, which advanced on a 2-1 subcommittee vote, would ask Iowa voters to inscribe current right-to-work law into the state constitution.
The 1947 provision spells out that Iowans cannot be denied a job because they choose not to join a union and forbids union membership as a condition of employment, as well as barring fees or other charges to non-union members.
