PLEA & APA Testify re: Anti Union Bill

PLEA Lobbyist and Consultant Dr. Levi Bolton and APA Executive Director Brian Livingston testified in the Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee to represent the interest of Law Enforcement in the controversial new ballot initiative. The bill supporters insist that the new initiative’s single purpose is to insure that where local, state or federal law permits or requires an election for employee elections, it shall be by secret ballot. Both PLEA and the APA support secret ballots, it is the actual bill language that is problematic and creates potential interpretation issues that may expand entitlements beyond the scope of the crafter’s intent.
