What Role Should Unions Have in Government?

Event Date - April 07, 2013

Please join us for a debate watching party on the future of labor unions and the government on Sunday, April 7!

Arizona’s largest independent television news station, KTVK-TV (Channel 3), will broadcast this debate about the role of labor unions in state and local government on April 7. Facing off on Channel 3’s “Politics Unplugged” will be Goldwater Institute constitutional policy expert Nick Dranias and former state Senator David Lujan, whose experience with union issues includes his prior service as an attorney for the National Labor Relations Board.

The Goldwater Institute will host a viewing party from 5:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 7, at 500 E. Coronado Road, Phoenix, Ariz., 85004. We invite you to watch the debate with us as it airs on Channel 3, and then continue the discussion live with your own questions for the experts.

Labor unions spent more than $1.2 million on political campaigns in Arizona in 2012. And tensions have been high at the state capitol this year as state lawmakers have been sharply divided on proposals to limit the influence of unions. This debate will examine the principles and the proper role for labor unions and collective bargaining in the government.

Attendance for the debate viewing party is free and refreshments will be served, but seating is limited. Please RSVP today by emailing Michael Pfeifer at mpfeifer@goldwaterinstitute.org or call him at (602) 462-5000, ext. 274.

This event is presented through the generous support of the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation.
