Workers' rights are on the ballot!

This fall, Illinois voters will have the opportunity to vote yes for the Workers’ Rights Amendment.

WHAT IS THE WORKERS' RIGHTS AMENDMENT?
It’s an important step to add protection to the state Constitution that will make it much harder for current or future politicians to limit your voice on the job, weaken your union or take away your right to collective bargaining.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?
With the Workers’ Rights Amendment in place, politicians couldn’t simply change the law to take away wages, benefits, workplace safety protections or other provisions of your union contract — the state Constitution would stand in their way.

WHAT WILL THE BALLOT QUESTION LOOK LIKE? 
At the top of your ballot, vote Yes on this question:
