Iowa politicians aim to eliminate collective bargaining.

 

 

In the coming legislative session Iowa law markers have introduced numerous bills, one of them aims to eliminate collective bargaining for state employees according to the article.

In a similar move, LB30 in Nebraska which is currently being introduced, would eliminate a Cities (aimed at Omaha & Lincoln) right to negotiate and maintain a retirement pension.

This is the same type of bill that Iowa has on deck, only a watered down version aimed to slowly eliminate our rights to negotiate a fair and competitive wage, benefit, and retirement structure to help retain and attract quality officers.

If Omaha's ability to maintain a fair and comparable retirement is eliminated then get ready to see the Omaha Police Department fall into the national headlines as the next major department with a hiring and retention crisis.
