Do the people of the state of Missouri want to adopt Senate Bill 19 (“Right-to-Work”) as passed by the general assembly in 2017, which prohibits as a condition of employment the forced membership in a labor organization (union) or forced payments of dues in full or pro-rata (fair-share); make any activity which violates employees’ rights illegal and ineffective; allow legal remedies for anyone injured as a result of another person violating or threatening to violate employees’ rights; and which shall not apply to union agreements entered into before the effective date of Senate Bill 19?
State and local government entities expect no costs or savings.
Fair Ballot Language:
A “yes” vote will adopt Senate Bill 19 (“right-to-work”), passed by the general assembly in 2017. If adopted, Senate Bill 19 will amend Missouri law to prohibit, as a condition of employment, forced membership in a labor organization (union) or forced payments of dues or fees, in full or pro-rata (“fair-share”), to a union. Senate Bill 19 will also make any activity which violates employees’ rights provided by the bill illegal and ineffective and allow legal remedies for anyone injured as a result of another person violating or threatening to violate those employees’ rights. Senate Bill 19 will not apply to union agreements entered into before the effective date of Senate Bill 19, unless those agreements are amended or renewed after the effective date of Senate Bill 19.
A “no” vote will reject Senate Bill 19 (“right-to-work”), and will result in Senate Bill 19 not becoming Missouri law.
If passed, this measure will have no impact on taxes
Unions, Democrats, and other left-wing groups are publishing articles, anti-Prop A videos that demonize the proponents, and printing yard signs that are being dispersed throughout the state. Meanwhile, democrats are joining in to try to help out one of their largest supporters, and financial contributors. However, although unions represented just 8.7% of workers in Missouri last year, democrats and the unions themselves hope that Missouri repeals ‘Right to Work’, which was implemented last year. Regardless, if Missouri votes to remain ‘Right to Work’ along with other conservative states, proponents believe that it would help boost the economy, by incentivizing other businesses to enter the state which would be a major win for Missouri residents and the Missouri economy.
Therefore, on August 7, get out and vote Yes on Proposition A. As a result, it would help to keep our state as a ‘Right to Work’ state, and keep the power in the hands of the workers throughout the state, rather than handing that power over to the big union bosses and democrats, so they can further push their progressive-socialist One-World ideology in not only in Missouri, but throughout the nation as well.
