What Does Right to Work Really Mean?


"Ultimately, the name is a misnomer. “Right to work” isn’t as much about your right to work as it is about limiting your right to collectively bargain. These laws, and related ones, aim to stop workers from collectively bargaining. While some similar laws simply outlaw collective bargaining, right to work laws make it illegal to collect fees from non-members to cover the costs of bargaining. That, in turn, harms a union’s ability to collectively bargain by limiting its resources." SEIU 1984
