Public unions already dominate the Illinois government, and Democratic lawmakers now want to amend the constitution to consolidate that power and block reform. These are the stakes of Amendment 1, which will appear on the November ballot.
Democratic majorities in the House and Senate last year voted to put the measure before voters. Amendment 1 would amend the Illinois Constitution to state that “employees have the fundamental right to organize and bargain collectively, through representatives of their own choosing, to negotiate wages, hours, and conditions of work and to protect their economic well-being and safety on the job.”
