Pending State Bill Could Limit Organizing

The Georgia General Assembly is currently considering SB 469 which was originally introduced to amend Georgia's code on labor relations to prohibit mass picketing and protesting at private residences. It was largely intended to protect business leaders and protect their right to quiet enjoyment at their residence. Violations carried heavy penalties upwards of $1,000 per day for individuals and $10,000 for organizatins. In a surprise last minute move, the House Rules Committee removed this portion of the bill. The only surviving portion of the bill is the provision that requires unionized employees to reconfirm or renew their decision to have their annual dues deducted from their paychecks. However, educators, law enforcement officials and firefighters are exempted.
