GOP trying to bust unions, Iowa AFSCME head says

DES MOINES — Unions that represent Iowa’s public employees think they are on the receiving end of a politically motivated attack from state lawmakers who seek to change dramatically the way some public employees collectively bargain for benefits.

Republican lawmakers last week introduced sweeping legislation that essentially rewrites the state’s collective bargaining laws. GOP officials say the current system, established in the 1970s, favors public employees at the expense of taxpayers.

Many provisions would significantly weaken unions’ bargaining position.
