Arizona lawmakers are scheduled to begin a special session Monday to fix an anti-union ballot measure ruled unconstitutional.
The legislation would ask voters at the Nov. 2 election whether to require a secret ballot for employees voting whether to organize as part of a labor union.
If approved by voters, the measure would have no immediate effect. Rather, it aims to undercut proposed federal legislation that would allow workers to decide whether to use a secret ballot or a public process when voting on forming a union.
The Arizona ballot measure is a priority for the business community, which argues that the federal legislation would allow union organizers to intimidate workers into joining.
Unions say workers should have a choice in how to form a union.
