Right-To-Work Bill Introduced In House Featured

  03 February 2017

Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) has introduced the National Right-to-Work Act (H.R. 946), a companion bill to S. 204 introduced last month, which would amend the National Labor Relations Act and the National Railway Act to prohibit labor unions from collecting fees from nonmembers.

Under current law, approximately eight million workers in the U.S. are required to pay union dues. At this time, 24 states have right-to-work legislation. The right-to-work bills are intended “to preserve and protect the free choice of individual employees to form, join, or assist labor organization, or to refrain from such activities.” Read more here.
