Illinois Amendment 1 challenges local sovereignty

The National PELRA learned late of the proposed state constitutional Amendment 1 that would alter the collective bargaining landscape by eliminating local sovereignty to negotiate in good faith. Amendment 1 would push an already union-friendly state to mandate benefits, as well as expand the required bargaining rules, much of which lack definition. Though 8% of the state completed early voting, it was important to provide an objective voice to an amendment that will further increase taxes to fund an expansion of benefits.
