Working women and men in Missouri turned out a huge “NO” vote on ballot measure Proposition A yesterday and rejected harmful “right to work” laws that were passed in the state Legislature last year.
This victory belongs to working people. It was our phone calls, our door knocks and, ultimately, our vote that had the final say.
Working families have stood united against this anti-worker legislation since the very beginning. Right to work is a threat to the stability of our families and communities. Stopping the passage of right to work in Missouri helps our momentum to fight this bad legislation nationally.
Our win yesterday proves yet again that working people are fired up and will not relent in our fight for a level economic playing field and the freedom for all workers to collectively bargain for higher wages, better benefits, and a loud, clear voice on the job.
Thank you for standing with us and supporting our work here for Missouri’s workers and the entire labor movement. It is, after all, a win for all working people.
President, Missouri AFL-CIO
