Senate committee holds hearing on labor union activity bill

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Dene Westbrook

This morning the Senate Reforms, Restructuring and Reinventing Committee hear testimony on HB 4059, a bill that would prohibit “union activity” during time paid for by a public employer.

The committee was discussing this substitute:HB 4059_h4.pdf (14.74 kb)

Many public employer and union groups discussed problems with this language. The chair indicated there would be an additional hearing next week with an intent to vote on the bill at that time.
