A bill that would have reformed collective bargaining in Iowa died in the legislative funnel this week.

The controversial House File 525 would have curtailed collective-barganing rights by prohibiting union workers from negotiating changes in their health-care plans.

The bill also would have prevented unions from bargaining over retirement and layoffs. The proposal drew a crowd of protesters in Iowa City earlier this month.
