Worker Rights Strengthened Through Transparent Recertification

12.04.17 11:26 AM

Public union recertification ensures that workers voice is heard and protected Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) is calling on members of the Government Accountability Committee to vote “YES” on House Bill 25 (HB25), introduced by Representative Scott Plakon. HB25 would expand freedoms for Florida workers and amplify their voice with their union representation, ensuring that unions better serve their membership. Unions that represent police and fire departments are exempt from this legislation. AFP-FL sent the members of the Government Accountability Committee a key vote letter on HB25, urging support for measure. AFP-FL will score votes on HB25 for its annual Economic Freedom Scorecard. AFP-FL’s state director, Chris Hudson released the following statement:* “Florida workers shouldn’t be forced into public union representation they don’t support. Requiring that public unions meet a 50 percent threshold of active dues-paying membership will ensure promote transparency and make union decision-makers more accountable to those they represent.* We appreciate Representative Plakon’s efforts to bring forward this common-sense bill and thank Chairman Caldwell for allowing it to be heard. We hope the House and Senate pass this measure quickly and send it to the Governor for his signature.”
