MNEA Legislative Update   Week 18, No. 2, May 12, 2015
By Otto Fajen   MNEA Legislative Director
SENATE FORCES VOTE TO PASS “RIGHT-TO-WORK”, BUT NOT PAYCHECK DECEPTION
The Senate took the rare step of forcing an end to debate by moving the “previous question” several times to force votes on a controversial bill that would affect the constitutional bargaining rights of all Missourians.
The Senate approved SCS/HCS/HBs 116 & 569 (Burlison) by a vote of 21-13.  The bill contains the so-called “Right-to-Work” proposal.  The “Right-to-Work” provision applies to all employees and would remove the ability of labor unions to receive compensation for the costs of fulfilling their duties as exclusive representative.
The Senate version now returns to the House for its approval.  The changes in the SCS are primarily the inclusion of specific penalty provisions for violations of the act.  The House concluded floor action for the day before the Senate passed HB 116, but the bill could be taken up by the House as soon as May 13.
The Association opposes the bill and appreciates the support of the bipartisan group of Senators who voted against the bill.
The Senate actually spent almost the entire day with amendments pending to add the Paycheck Deception proposal for certain public labor organizations, but those amendments were all withdrawn before the forced votes were taken on the original bill pertaining to “Right-to-Work.”
Paycheck Deception would apply to most public labor organizations and require annual, written authorization for payroll deduction of member contributions for dues and for political action.
The Association opposes Paycheck Deception.  All employees have the constitutional right to participate in the Association and work together to support political campaigns without undue interference from state policies that would undermine those rights.

Missouri NEA Legislative ACTION ALERT

Week 9, March 3, 2015

By Otto Fajen  MNEA Legislative Director

ACTION ALERT: SENATE COMMITTEE TO HEAR PAYCHECK DECEPTION BILL THIS WEEK

The Senate Small Business, Insurance and Industry Committee will hear SB 129 (Brown) on March 4. This bill applies to most public labor organizations and requires annual, written authorization for payroll deduction of union dues and member contributions for political action. The bill exempts first responders, such as police and firefighters.

The Association opposes SB 129. All employees have the constitutional right to participate in the Association and work together to support political campaigns without undue interference from state policies that would undermine those rights.

 

ACTION NEEDED:  PLEASE CALL, WRITE OR USE THE LINK BELOW TO SEND AN E-MAIL TO URGE YOUR STATE SENATOR TO OPPOSE SB 129.  Your message will have a greater impact if you personalize the message and add your own concerns regarding the bill.

 

http://www.capwiz.com/nea/mo/issues/alert/?alertid=64191616&type=ST

 

Under Missouri school law (section 168.300, RSMo.) and school board policy, requests for elective payroll deductions of all types already must be authorized by the individual employee.  The school district must also deduct any costs associated with any requested payroll deduction.  The current law has been working well for more than thirty years.

The bill unnecessarily burdens our school business officials and school employees with excessive paperwork requirements.  Singling out particular deductions and employees for more paperwork burden is unfair to employees, cumbersome for business officials and makes it far more likely that schools and other employers will face litigation when attempting to implement these unfair policies.
