Missouri Voters Crush ‘Right to Work for Less’
Updated On: Aug 08, 2018
August 8, 2018 | WORKERS’ RIGHTS | Voters in Missouri rejected a state law banning the union shop by a two-to-one margin in the Aug. 7 primary. Proposition A, which would have allowed the so-called “right to work” law enacted last year to go into effect, lost by almost 500,000 votes out of 1.4 million cast. The measure, which would have let employees refuse to pay dues or fees to the union representing them, got only 32.5% of the vote. “It’s a truly historic moment,” Missouri AFL-CIO President Mike Louis said in a statement. He credited the “thousands of hardworking men and women” who “knocked on more than 800,000 doors, made more than 1 million phone calls, and talked to working people on more than 1,000 different job sites.” Unions, including the national AFL-CIO, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Teamsters, and the United Food & Commercial Workers, raised about $20 million for the repeal campaign… Labor Press
