Here's the relevant text of Missouri's RTW bill that's seeking to override Gov. Nixon's veto:
5 2. No person shall be required as a condition or continuation of employment to:
6 (1) Become or refrain from becoming a member of a labor organization;
7 (2) Pay any dues, fees, assessments, or other similar charges however denominated
8 of any kind or amount to a labor organization; or
9 (3) In lieu of the payments listed under subdivision (2) of this subsection, pay to any
10 charity or other third party any amount equivalent to, or on a pro rata basis, any dues,
11 fees, assessments, or other charges required of members of a labor organization.
12 3. Any agreement, understanding, or practice, written or oral, implied or
13 expressed, between any labor organization and employer that violates the rights of
14 employees as guaranteed under this section is declared to be unlawful, null and void, and
15 of no legal effect.
Does that seem to you to be a violation of liberty, or a defense of it?
Is there something in there that your understanding of Conservative ideas could oppose?
If that seems like something you think every Missouri worker should be able to count on, then let your State Representative and State Senator know - especially if your State Rep., like mine, is Kathie Conway.
Better yet, get yourself down to the capital in Jefferson City on Wednesday, and let them know personally. From AFP:
THIS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2015...
RIGHT TO WORK RALLY
Below you will find important information regarding the upcoming "RIGHT TO WORK" rally in Jefferson City, including updated "ACTION ITEMS".
It is important to note that override of Gov. Nixon's veto of the Right to Work bill would...
- give employees the freedom to choose whether they wish to join a union
- "right to work" states attract more businesses which results in more jobs
- more jobs and more businesses means a stronger economy for "right to work" states
ACTION ITEM #1
Below you will find a message from the rally organizer, Mary Hill, that includes the names and contact information of the legislators that need to be convinced to vote "YES" for the override....
It's coming down to the wire....and some of these still support compulsion and I have heard every excuse and distortion in the book. What Obama's National Labor Relations Board has cooked up for employers nationwide is bad enough and these reps and senators should take that that into account.......here is our GOLDEN opportunity in Missouri. We need this law PERIOD!! For JObs for freedom .
These are NO VOTERS on Right to Work.... Please email them. The unions are emailing them from all over the country. And of course the unions/democrats will have paid protesters at the Capitol on the day of override that is why we have to be there in huge numbers.
This is an Historic Vote....no legislature in this country has tried to override on Right to Work.
These Reps and Senators need to vote YES for Right to Work. Workers need freedom, not forced union dues.
Who of these is going to continue to stand with Jay Nixon?
Would you please email these reps/senators? Thanks if you do.
Please "like" our Worker Freedom page it has all the latest happenings regarding Right to Work in Missouri!!
Right to Work for Missouri!!!
ACTION ITEM #2
Below you will find the details for the Rally....including the schedule of guest speakers...please attend if at all possible as a show of support for the passage of Right to Work in the State of Missouri....
"We need to pack the Capitol and the House Lounge, Unions will be there in force!"
IMPORTANT NOTE: Americans for Prosperity/Missouri is providing bus transportation to the Rally from the these locations...
