In 1961, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated "We must guard against being fooled by slogans, such as 'right to work.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone."
Republican lawmakers have introduced a National Right-to-Work law in Congress. The legislation, if enacted, would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the Railway Labor Act. It would prohibit so-called "security clauses" that require all employees in a unionized workplace to join a union, or pay one a regular fee as a condition of employment. Union leaders assert that security clauses are fair because collective bargaining benefits all workers. Right-To-Work drives down wages, raises the poverty rate, and makes us less safe at work! It is wrong for working familes. Please call, write, or text your U.S. Senator and Congressman and tell them to oppose Right-To-Work legislation!
