In a press release sent by the Roberts for Governor campaign, Representative Rod Roberts (R-Carroll) encourages Iowans to contact their legislators and ask them to vote no on HF 2420 which would repeal part of Iowa’s longstanding Right-to-Work law.

ROBERTS OPPOSES PARTIAL REPEAL OF RIGHT-TO-WORK LAW

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rod Roberts is calling on Iowans to contact their state legislators to urge them to oppose a bill in the Iowa House that would require some non-union state government employees to pay fees to labor unions. Currently, Iowa’s “right to work” law prohibits agreements that require non-union employees to pay fees to unions as part of their employment. But House File 2420, which Democrat legislators are promoting, is a direct threat to Iowa’s right-to-work law.

“House File 2420 is nothing more than a partial repeal of Iowa’s right-to-work law. Iowa’s right to work law has ensured that all Iowa workers—whether they are privately employed or publicly employed—have the choice of whether or not to pay union dues. House File 2420 will decrease the freedom of Iowa workers, and it will take the state one step closer to a total repeal of Iowa’s right-to-work law,” said Roberts, an Assistant Minority Leader in the Iowa House.

Roberts warns that since a total repeal of Iowa’s right to work law could force all non-union employees to pay union dues, the repeal would not only impose a financial burden on non-union employees, but it would also increase the cost of labor for Iowa businesses, which would ultimately result in a loss of jobs for Iowans.

“Iowa Legislators—whether Republican or Democrat—need to focus on reducing the state unemployment rate, not increasing it,” said Roberts, a five-term State Representative from Carroll. “After tonight’s three-hour public hearing, the Iowa House could debate House File 2420 at any minute, so I urge Iowa residents to contact their state legislators today to ask them to oppose this partial repeal of Iowa’s right-to-work law.”
