Missouri Right-To-Work Reversal

Missouri is no longer a Right-to-Work state.  Voters on Tuesday struck down a right-to-work law.

On 28 August 2017 Missouriís Right-to-Work law was schedule to take effect.  But unions fought back and was able to delay the implementation of the law until the statewide referendum where the people would get to decide.  They eventually were able to gather enough signatures to get a repeal petition on the ballot for the 2018 election cycle. 

On 7 August 2018 the residents of the state of Missouri voted 67% to 33% against keeping the law in place.

Under the Right-to-Work law approved in February 2017 workers could not be compelled, as a condition of employment, to join or to pay dues to a labor union.

Twenty-seven states have laws permitting workers in unionized settings to choose not to join and pay membership fees.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics about 8.7% of workers in Missouri are union members , compared to 10.7% of workers nationally.

The union represents 12,000 Missourians at factories including Boeing, Harley-Davidson and Honeywell.
