Iowa unions brace for bargaining bill impact

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: And here we go, unions are starting to whine now about the inevitable drop in numbers, with the media aiding and abetting in the whining..... Here's a thought, employees are now free to leave the union, which means they really didn't want to belong in the first place.

DES MOINES — If Wisconsin is any guide, Iowa’s public-sector unions are facing a precipitous decline in membership, even as their leaders vow to survive the effects of the overhaul of Iowa’s 43-year-old collective bargaining law, which Gov. Terry Branstad signed Friday.

In the five years after Act 10 was approved in Wisconsin, membership in two of the three councils of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union dropped by 70 percent, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The union representing teachers in Milwaukee lost 30 percent of its members.
