Unions will continue fight against anti-corruption measure

Colorado Amendment 54 passed narrowly, despite the heavy union spending. It restricts campaign contribution by persons and organizations who have single-source, no-bid government contracts. This includes unions as well as corporations, since unions often have sole-source collective bargaining contracts with school districts.

The unions are already making plans to file a court case against Amendment 54. Yet even if the teachers unions prevail in court, all they achieve is restoration of the old status quo - having spent millions of dollars to block some reforms.
