Illinois does better when our workers do better. Instead of letting politicians and special interests take away workers’ freedoms, we are committed to protecting workers’ rights to make their workplaces safer, fight for better pay, and get access to the training they need.
The Workers’ Rights Amendment is
Key to Illinois’ future
Too many Illinoisans work hard every day but cannot afford to buy what they need or invest for the future. When workers earn more money and enjoy safe workplaces, our economy and communities reap the benefits. The Workers’ Rights Amendment will give power back to workers and fuel Illinois’ economy.
What is the workers’ rights amendment?
The Workers’ Rights Amendment adds language to the Illinois constitution to protect workers’ pathway to the middle class, ensuring workers have access to stable, family-sustaining jobs as well as safe and secure workplaces.
Section 25. Workers’ Rights
(a) Employees shall have the fundamental right to organize and to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing for the purpose of negotiating wages, hours, and working conditions, and to protect their economic welfare and safety at work. No law shall be passed that interferes with, negates, or diminishes the right of employees to organize and bargain collectively over their wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment and work place safety, including any law or ordinance that prohibits the execution or application of agreements between employers and labor organizations that represent employees requiring membership in an organization as a condition of employment.
