Right to Work
Union bosses have no shame when it comes to denying workers the freedom
to tell a union they do not want to join and have money taken out of their paychecks to help promote big labor’s liberal political agenda. Â They are currently leading a petition campaign to stop reform in the state before it has the chance to work for Missourians.
Right to work gives workers the freedom to refuse to join a union as a condition of employment.
Union bosses do not like right to work because it requires the unions to be responsive to the members needs and not to he wishes of big labor bosses in Washington, D.C. Â For example, many local union members support the Second Amendment, while labor leaders in Washington, D.C., work to weaken Americans’ right to bear arms.
Missouri would not be the first right-to-work state, and studies show the reform benefits workers. Â In fact, they indicate right-to-work policies lead to faster-growing wages, economic growth and lower unemployment.
Why would union bosses stand in the way of better wages and economic growth? Â It’s because right to work empowers the worker and not the union bosses.
Sen. Will Kraus, Lee’s Summit
I have explained at every Union meeting in the last six months that the political climate in Jefferson City was of pure “Hatred” towards Organized Labor. Â Their goal is to weaken and destroy your Union, adversely affecting your (and your family) wages and benefits. Senator Kraus political tone could not have been more evident on how he feels about our Union way of life. Â I will do my very best to get a meeting set up with Senator Kraus, Veteran to Veteran, and discuss his editorial in the KC Star. Â I will be contacting other Union Labor organizations for the possibility of rallying Union Veterans for a visit to Jefferson City.
: Â Is more important today than ever. Â Just signing the RTW Petition is not enough. Â The National RTW Campain is throwing millions of dollars at this campaign to defeat us. Â They are also using their manpower to counter us. Â You must engage and donate your time to combat all of their efforts. Â Contact IBEW Lu #124 (816)-942-7500 to volunteer. Â We win together as a TEAM or we lose together as a TEAM. Â
