Iowa Association of Business and Industry Hits the Airwaves

abi LogoThe Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI) has launched a grassroots media campaign this week aimed to stop a controversial proposal that forces workers to pay fees to labor unions.

The statewide radio campaign will focus on a union-sponsored bill in the House Labor Committee that if adopted would be very detrimental to Iowa’s economic climate. “The legislature should focus on ways to make Iowa more competitive for job creation, not less. This legislation violates Iowa’s right to work law and discourages economic development in Iowa.” said Bill Brown, partner at BrownWinick, a Des Moines law firm, and ABI Board Chair.

The ads will begin this week statewide.

As The Voice of Iowa Business Since 1903, ABI is comprised of approximately 1,400 Iowa businesses employing more than 300,000 Iowans. Member organizations represent all types and sizes of business. ABI’s mission is to collectively provide a strong, unified voice to business and industry on issues impacting Iowa employers. For more, go to
