Resolution Supporting Right To Work

The Platte County Republican Central Committee overwhelming passed the same RTW resolution passed by Missouri State Republican Committee.

Resolution Supporting Right to Work

WHEREAS, currently, tens of thousands of Missouri workers are forced to pay a fee to a labor union just to get or keep their jobs; and

WHEREAS, the overwhelming majority of Missourians are opposed to forced unionism; and

WHEREAS, passage of a Missouri Right to Work law would end once and for all the collection of forced union dues as a condition of employment in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, PHH Fantus, the nation’s longtime leading business relocation firm, reported that at least half of all companies looking to expand or relocate automatically eliminate states without Right to Work laws; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, private sector payroll employment increased by 9.9% in Right to Work states, yet only a mere 1.6% here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, real personal income in Right to Work states grew by nearly 22%, but less than half that here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, private sector employment increased by 9.9% in Right to Work states, yet only a mere 1.6% here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, over the past decade, real personal income in Right to Work states grew by nearly 22%, but less than half that here in Missouri; and

WHEREAS, from a moral, economic and Liberty standpoint — passage of a Right to Work law would be good for Missouri’s workers and economy; and

WHEREAS, the many legislators who supported Right to Work during its successful passage through the General Assembly should be commended for standing up for our economy and for the rights of Missouri’s workers; and

WHEREAS, Governor Nixon’s veto of this common sense bill is a threat to our economic well-being.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that in the interest of individual workers’ freedoms, more jobs, and our state’s economy, the Platte County Central Committee supports enactment of a Right to Work law in Missouri and urges the Missouri House and Missouri Senate to override Governor Nixon’s veto of House Bills 116 and 569.
