House To Revive Collective Bargaining Bills

Proving yet again that no concept ever dies in the General Assembly, the House plans on reviving a measure that would allow personal care attendants and daycare workers to collectively bargain as an amendment to another bill Friday.

The two bills that sought to codify Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s controversial executive orders allowing the two groups to collectively bargain died in the Labor and Public Employees Committee in March. However, House Democrats will attempt to attach an amendment doing exactly what the two previous bills called for, to a new bill calling for the creation of a task force.

Republican lawmakers oppose the concept which they say amounts to forced unionization and three lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the executive orders have been filed in Connecticut courts.

Part of the argument in the lawsuits claims the legislature failed to approve the concept in 2011, so Malloy forced it upon the two groups by writing the two executive orders.

The House plans on taking up the bill shortly after it convenes Friday afternoon.
