Important labor bill on the move

Share
Dear

I’ve been in and out of the Capitol all week and wanted to update you on an important bill we’ve been tracking. With midterm elections looming and only a few session days left, lawmakers must prioritize this legislation.

HB 2571 enforces the Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME, which freed public sector workers from paying agency fees to a union they didn’t join, just to keep their jobs. Nearly one-third of impacted workers aren’t aware of the case. Unions would like it to stay this way.

HB 2571 would require employers to alert public sector workers they don’t have to join a union or pay a fee if they reject membership. It would also align state law with federal law regarding the Janus ruling.

The legislation passed the House Labor Committee last week, despite—as Jeremy told you—all Democratic members walking out. Some representatives claimed the walkout invalidated the vote, but earlier this week representatives voted to uphold the committee vote and prime this needed legislation for a full House vote.

Advancing this legislation is becoming more urgent as unions, and even state governments, try to circumvent the Janus decision and restrict workers’ freedom to freely choose union membership.

It’s time for lawmakers to pass this nonpartisan and meaningful legislation. We need your help showing them support for the bill. Please click here to send a quick message today.

Thanks,
Nate
