On a party line vote, the House Oversight, Reform and Ethics Committee passed on Tuesday House Bills 5023-5026, a package of anti-union bills meant to curtail the powers of labor unions:

HB 5023--fines striking public employees one day's pay and their union $5,000 for each day of the strike, expanding the penalties beyond the current rules that only apply to public school employees.

HB 5024--sets fines and restrictions on members and their unions for mass picketing.

HB 5025--requires an employee's annual written authorization to have their union dues deducted from their paycheck by employers.

HB 5026--eliminates the prohibition against employers advertising for strike breakers.
