Iowa workers vote for strong unions

Oct. 29, 2018

Statement by Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen

“The results of the recertification elections today are a huge victory for working families across Iowa.

“With the deck stacked against them by the Governor and Republican-controlled Legislature, Iowa workers voted overwhelmingly in favor of being represented by strong unions.

“Our friends and neighbors across the state who work every day to teach our kids, keep our families and communities safe, and protect the most vulnerable Iowans need to have a voice in the workplace. Iowans depend on their voices being heard.

“Congratulations to Iowa’s public workers and their unions for this huge victory today.”
