Call your Representative and Senator today — tell them to stop the closed-door attacks on Iowa workers!

 

Republicans in the legislature are on the attack — coming after worker’s rights.

Will you call your Representative and Senator today?

The Des Moines Register has reported that plans are being made to assault Chapter 20, the Iowa’s Collective Bargaining law, that has been in place and worked for over 40 years. Republican legislators are making these plans, and doing so “behind closed doors” — shutting workers out of the process!

Call your Representative and Senator today — tell them to stop the closed-door attacks on Iowa workers!

Call your Representative: (855) 790-8815
Call your Senator: (844) 332-8460

The potential attacks being discussed in secret would remove nearly all of the provisions that give hard-working Iowans a seat at the negotiating table, silencing the voices of Iowa educators, correction officers, snow plow drivers, nurses, and more.

The consequences of these Republican attacks would be severe. Public workers we all rely on may have fewer health benefits, lower wages and no say in their working conditions. Other states that gutted collective bargaining laws saw their most qualified workers leave the state, and we can’t afford to have that happen in Iowa.

The fight has just begun, and we need your help to stand up for working Iowans.

Call your legislators, and save those numbers listed above. Then sign up here for more information!

We’ll stay in touch regularly, to give you the resources you need to flood the capitol with emails and phone calls to stand with Iowa workers!

Thanks for all you do,
