Newton County Republican Right to Work Resolution

On Monday, August 31, 2015, the Newton County Republican Central Committee adopted by unanimous voice vote, a Right to Work Resolution.

“WHEREAS, currently, tens of thousands of Missouri workers are forced to pay a fee to a labor union just to get or keep their jobs; and

WHEREAS, the overwhelming majority of Missourians are opposed to forced unionism; and

WHEREAS, passage of a Missouri Right to Work law would end once and for all the collection of forced union dues as a condition of employment in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, PHH Fantus, the nation’s longtime leading business relocation firm, reported that at least half of all companies looking to expand or relocate automatically eliminate states without Right to Work laws; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, private sector payroll employment increased by 9.9% in Right to Work states, yet only a mere 1.6% here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, real personal income in Right to Work states grew by nearly 22%, but less than half that here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, real personal income in right-to-work states rose nearly twice as much as in other states in an extended period from 1970-2013; and

WHEREAS, from a moral, economic and Liberty standpoint -- passage of a Right to Work law would be good for Missouri’s workers and economy; and

WHEREAS, the many legislators who supported Right to Work during its successful passage through the General Assembly should be commended for standing up for our economy and for the rights of Missouri’s workers; and

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that in the interest of individual workers’ freedoms, more jobs, and our state’s economy, the Newton County Republican Central Committee supports enactment of a Right to Work law in Missouri.”

Here is a link to the Right to Work Bill (HB116) that was vetoed by Governor Nixon.The bill is subject to override during the September 15 Missouri General Assembly veto session.
