UFCW Members Vow to Block “Right to Work” in Missouri

While thanking Missouri Governor Jay Nixon for vetoing a bill that was designed to silence workers, the 20,000-member Missouri United Food and Commercial Workers vowed to the state’s proposed “right to work” legislation.

“Right to work sounds good on paper, but in reality it means lower paying jobs, fewer benefits, and more dangerous workplaces. It is being pushed by out of state special interests who believe workers do not deserve a say in the terms of their employment. Plain and simple, it’s a corporate giveaway at the expense of everyday Missouri families,” the organization says.
