Iowa Workers Overwhelmingly Support Unions In Recertification Vote

Iowa’s working families sent a clear message to Governor Reynolds and the Republican-controlled legislature today: we are not letting you take our unions away from us.

Iowans owe a thank you to every labor union who organized and turned out workers to vote in these elections, because when unions are strong, Iowa is much stronger.

After taking control of state government for the first time in nearly twenty years, Republicans went on the attack against workers and their ability to organize this year. One of the most extreme attacks forced recertification elections, including a provision that counted any absent vote as a ‘no’ vote. Even with those odds stacked against them, labor unions across Iowa fought back to protect their voice in the workplace, and today have won a resounding victory for working families.
