Amendment 1 on the November ballot is being promoted by unions in Illinois. Supporters say the measure will protect workers’ rights. Opponents say it will further drive the state off a fiscal cliff through new tax increases. As the November election nears, one measure is starting to gain support from union groups. New ads have been released by the Illinois AFL-CIO, comprised of over 1,500 affiliated unions representing nearly 900,000 workers in Illinois. The ad claims that the measure will benefit Illinois’s people.
The Amendment has also been met with a significant amount of pushback. The Citizen Advisory Coalition to Save Illinois is led by Anthony Travis, a Proviso Village trustee, and has been speaking out against a pro-union amendment up for a vote in November.
The measure will be on the ballot for the November 8th election.
