OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) – The Republican-controlled Oklahoma Senate dealt organized labor another defeat on Tuesday when it voted to repeal a collective bargaining law.
The 29-19 vote means that some of the state’s fastest-growing cities no longer will be required to collectively bargain with sanitation workers and other non-uniformed workers.
The measure already passed the Oklahoma House and now goes to Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, who is expected to sign it into law.
The bill would repeal a law passed in 2004, when the Oklahoma Legislature and the governorship were controlled by Democrats. The law required cities with populations over 35,000 to engage in collective bargaining with non-uniformed workers, though it did not affect Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Norman and Muskogee, which already were engaged in collective bargaining.
These laws are dropping faster now.
Rest In Peace America
