Missouri AFL-CIO Has The Petition Signatures For A ‘People’s Veto’ Election On Anti-Union Law
By Doug Cunningham
Missouri AFL-CIO President Mike Louis says enough petition signatures have been collected to give Missouri voters a “people’s veto” on the so-called “Right To Work’ anti-worker law. Louis says over 112,000 – more than enough signatures – are already collected to give all Missouris voters a chance to override their government on this issue.
[Mike Louis]: “We have exceeded that number quite handily. I feel pretty good that the people understand what would happen. And I feel pretty good that they’re not gonna allow it to happen.”
The signatures will stop the so-called ‘right to work’ law from going into effect August 28th. Instead, the people of Missouri will decide at the ballot box next year which side they are on when it comes to workers’ rights.
The law attacks unions financially by banning contracts between workers and employers that deduct union dues from paychecks.
[Mike Louis]: “People understand that this is nothing more than government overreach between private sector employers and their employees.”
