Lawmakers in the house are considering a change to the Iowa constitution. A subcommittee approved House Joint Resolution One Wednesday, which adds right-to-work laws to the state constitution.
The law says a person can’t be denied a job solely because they refuse to join a union.
There is already a law in place that does the same job, but supporters feel it needs to be added to the constitution because there have been efforts to change the law in the past.
Union members and opponents say the efforts are just wasting lawmakers’ time.
The proposal now moves to another house committee.
If the change is approved by the house the bill isn’t expected to make it through the senate.
