The proposal, if enacted, would outlaw any contract that would require an employee to pay union fees, and would not allow agreements between businesses and unions that would make union fees a condition of employment.
Let's be clear, this isn't about jobs or making Missouri more competitive. This isn't about protecting workers or anything along those lines. Right to Work is a baseless attack on the rights of workers to organize. It takes away the rights of workers to form a union to bargain for better working conditions, pay and benefits. These sorts of bills and initiatives are designed by radical politicians and their greedy corporate buddies in an effort to hurt their political opponents by eliminating unions, reducing or eliminating workers' rights and consolidating power over working Americans and the 99%.
“Missourians are calling for their elected leaders to work for jobs, and we can’t afford another wasted session,” said Cathy Sherwin, spokeswoman for the Missouri AFL-CIO. “Pushing anti-worker laws like ‘right to work’ and ‘paycheck protection’ aren’t going to create any jobs and won’t get our economy on track.”
Missouri would do well to reject any sort of Right to Work for Less legislation or initiative should it ever rear it's ugly head.
