Below you will find an update on the “right to work”effort in Missouri as of the end of the last Missouri legislative session…including a bulleted “action plan” at the end of this email if you are in support of Missouri becoming a Right to Work state…

Right to Work

Many people in the State of Missouri have worked hard over several years to pass “Right to Work”… thanks to State Representative Eric Burlision (District 133) House Bill Nos 116 & 569 passed in the Missouri Legislature during the 2015 session. Unfortunately, Governor Nixon vetoed the bill. Union bosses are working very hard to sustain the veto.

It is equally important that people in support of Right to Work work just as hard to convince the NO votes to change their position and help override the veto. It takes 109 votes to do that.

NOTE:  The Veto Override session starts on Wednesday, September 16, 2015…You might also want to come to Jefferson City on that day for a big Rally (we will provide more information on that event later).

Right to Work has already passed in 25 States.  Supporters of Right to Work argue that Right to Work laws not only protect workers’ freedom to choose, but it also bolsters the economies of the States by promoting business investment and by bringing more jobs into their States.

FYI…Right to work legislation being proposed in Missouri states that no person shall be required to become a member of a labor organization, pay any dues to the labor organization or other third party and several other conditions. This link lets you read the bill in its entirety – http://www.house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills151/billpdf/truly/HB0116T.PDF.

If you support this issue...below are the names of phone numbers of Senators and Representatives that need to change their votes.

If you support this issue…call these Legislators and keep calling them to remind them of this important issue. You might also want to call your Representative that voted “yes” on this legislation and encourage that person not to change their vote during the veto session.
