Key Facts About Right-to-Work

Right-to-work protects workers’ freedom

Before right-to-work was passed, Missourians could be forced to join a union and pay union dues. While a strong majority of Missourians supported right-to-work, “closed-shop” rules denied this basic freedom to thousands of workers. Workers could even be fired if they refused to join the union.

Right-to-work ensures that workers aren’t forced to hand over their hard-earned money to unions, which is often used to support union-backed political activities with which they disagree. Most Americans believe that membership contributions, including political giving, should be voluntary.
