REFERENDUM ON NEW LAW RELATIVE TO GOVERNMENT UNION CONTRACTS & OTHER GOVERNMENT EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS AND POLICIES
A majority yes vote is necessary for Amended Substitute Senate Bill No. 5 to be approved. [Link]
Amended Substitute Senate Bill No. 5 is a new law relative to government union contracts & other government employment contracts and policies.
A “YES” vote means you approve the law. A “NO” vote means you reject the law.
Senate Bill 5 will impact the state's 400,000 public workers, restricting their ability to strike and collectively bargain. As it stands, the bill would only permit public employees to collectively bargain for wages, preventing them from collectively bargaining for health insurance and pensions. It would also prohibit all public employees from striking and could increase employee contributions for pensions and healthcare.
