Sweeping bills attack public employee unions
“Arizona’s Republican Legislature could virtually wipe out public employee unions in a sweeping new package of legislation far broader than the collective-bargaining bills that shut down Wisconsin’s Capitol last spring.
The bills would:
–Make it illegal for government bodies to collectively bargain with employee groups. Public safety unions would be included in the ban.
–End the practice of automatic payroll deductions for union dues.
–Ban compensation of public employees for union work.”
