Tentative deal reached with business interests on CIR reform

Posted on by

Nebraska State Senator Steve Lathrop announced yesterday business interests had agreed to a tentative compromise on CIR reform. While details of the legislation are uncertain, Lathrop is confident that Governor Dave Henieman will support the bill that changes how public sector unions assert their collective bargaining rights.

While the exact terms of the deal are uncertain, it is my view that this legislation will likely represent the least worse option for public sector employees. If this deal is passed into law, Senator Lathrop should be commended for his efforts in trying to fairly balance the interests of business, governments and public employees.
