‘Workers’ rights amendment’ would hike workers’ property taxes by $2,100




Despite proponents’ claims, Amendment 1 would give union rights only to state and local government workers – who make up just 7% of Illinois adults. It would give $2,100 property tax hikes to everyone.

Proponents of Amendment 1, also known as the “Workers’ Rights Amendment,” misleadingly claim it will guarantee “every Illinoisan” the right to unionize and bargain. In fact, they insist the amendment “protects all Illinoisans, on the job and off.”

Those statements are wrong. Amendment 1 cannot do what backers claim it will do.
