    Illinois: Concerns raised Amendment 1 could open door to public safety strikes

    October 21, 2022 // Supporters say Amendment 1 aims to codify collective bargaining rights in Illinois for wages, work conditions, and other issues. Opponents say that the amendment would lead to higher property taxes for residents. The Illinois Municipal League argues against the measure, saying if approved, it could lead to strikes among emergency workers. The measure will be on the ballot for the Nov. 8 election. The question requires either three-fifths approval of those voting on the question or a simple majority of all votes cast in the election to be enacted.
