Union members rally at Missouri Capitol against right-to-work

A few thousand union members from across Missouri rallied at the Statehouse in Jefferson City on a cloudy Wednesday afternoon, against a right-to-work referendum and for worker safety.

Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, D-Bellefontaine Neighbors, reminded the audience that 60 percent of Missourians rejected a right-to-work ballot measure in 1978.

“We told them (right-to-work backers) in ’78 that we didn’t want this, they’re back again,” Walsh says. “They’re going to be back every year, but we’re going to send a clear message to these folks come election time.”

Right-to-work says that a person cannot be required to join or refrain from joining a labor organization, as a condition of employment.

Walsh tells the audience that the right-to-work ballot referendum will lower wages for workers.

“Prop (Proposition) A wants to tear down what we (labor) built. Prop A means lower wages, fewer rights and less protection for your family,” says Walsh.

Walsh urges union members to knock on doors and make phone calls, saying labor will defeat right-to-work.
