Governor Nixon Blocks ‘Right-To-Work’ Bill

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  Organized labor in the Show-Me-State is celebrating a victory after Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the “Right-To-Work” legislation on Thursday afternoon.

Nixon joined union leaders and workers along with elected officials at the Sheet Metal Workers Training Facility where he took this expected action.  Nixon says this legislation would lower wages and weaken unions.  “The special interest who are supporting this bill don’t want to talk about the damaging effects it would have, so the give it a misleading name – Right-To-Work, but the truth of the matter is that Right-To-Work is wrong and it will not work.”

Supporters of House Bill 116 claim it would attract business and spur the economy.
