Sen. Bill Brady trying to strip workers' rights to negotiate health care benefits

Senator Bill Brady has just introduced Senate Amendment 1 to SB 2680, which replaces everything after the enacting clause. 

His amendment would amend the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act to provide that the design, implementation, and administration of a health insurance plan shall not be the subject of negotiations between the State of Illinois and any union representing public employees, and that the duty of the employer "to bargain collectively" shall not include any obligation to negotiate health insurance or health benefits.

This legislation would let Gov. Bruce Rauner set employee health care premiums based on the devastating terms he has been trying to impose on state employees.

Tell your state senator: Vote NO on Senate Amendment 1 to SB 2680!
