So-called right to work laws are wrong for working and middle class families. These laws make paying union dues optional - even though unions are required by law to represent all workers under their agreements. In other words, the laws give people the right to shirk - since all the benefits of a union contract still cover everyone, regardless if they pay dues or not. As a result, unions will have trouble representing members and negotiating contracts because bargaining power will be lost.
The effort to pass a right to shirk law is currently under way in Ohio. Recently these laws were passed in Indiana and Michigan. In Ohio, the same people who wanted to take away our collective bargaing rights with Senate Bill 5 are behind the right to shirk. It's crucial that we educate ourselves and our co-workers, families, neighbors and friends about the truth behind this deceitful effort. When was the last time billionaires spent millions of dollars to give more rights and freedom in the workplace?Read more >>>
