Idaho Collective Bargaining Targeted

Item: Idaho in line for union battle STATE of the UNION: Bill would prevent all public workers from collective bargaining, strikes/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The bill is SB 1124 and its purpose is to eliminate collective bargaining for all Idaho public employees. Its author, Meridian Republican Sen. Shirley McKague, had it printed this year with the understanding it wouldn't come up for discussion during the 2011 Legislative session, but would give Idaho lawmakers time to read it and prepare for its possible formal introduction in 2012. Idaho might join the political war that polarized the Midwest this year.

Question: Do you want to see the state of Idaho eliminate collective bargaining for all stat public employees?
