Support Collective Bargaining in Georgia
While public sector workers in Georgia have the right to form and join unions, the state does not provide these public sector unions with the right to bargain on behalf of their members over the terms of their contracts. In practice, this means the state has total control over workers’ wages and salaries, health care benefits, retirement funding, sick leave, and workplace health and safety.
If House Bill 1576 becomes law, Georgia will join 26 other states that allow public sector collective bargaining.
This fall, we will be holding a virtual educational event on public sector collective bargaining and HB 1576.
Share your information to stay up-to-date on how to support the movement for collective bargaining rights and to be alerted about the event for members.
