MNEA Special Legislative Update  June 4, 2015

GOVERNOR VETOES SO-CALLED “RIGHT-TO-WORK”

Governor Jay Nixon vetoed HCS/HBs 116 and 569 on June 4.  The Association opposes the bill and appreciates the action of the Governor to veto this harmful legislation.  MNEA urges legislators to vote in opposition to the bill and sustain the veto, should the bill be brought up for an override attempt in the Veto Session this September.  The bill was approved during session by a House vote of 92-66 and a Senate vote of 21-13, short of the 109 House votes and 23 Senate votes needed to override a veto.

Under the Missouri Constitution, all employees have the right to bargain collectively through representatives of their own children. However, the constitutional right of employees to bargain collectively may be rendered ineffective unless employee unions are allowed to operate effectively.

The so-called “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.  HB 116 would weaken the process of collective bargaining between management and labor.

This proposal will have an effect that goes far beyond collective bargaining rights and union representation.  States with “Right-to-Work” laws trail behind in important aspects that matter to children and schools.  Those states generally have lower wages, less investment in public education and healthcare, reduced access to employer-provided healthcare and higher poverty.  Educational success for students often lags behind in “Right-to-Work” states.

MNEA Action Alert  Week 18, May 12, 2015

This message is coming to you from the Missouri NEA Legislative Update listserv (mo-nea-legis-update@list.nea.org).

URGENT ACTION ALERT: HOUSE EXPECTED TO VOTE ON “RIGHT-TO-WORK” AND PAYCHECK DECEPTION BILL
The Senate is poised to take the rare step of forcing an end to debate on a controversial bill that would affects the constitutional bargaining rights of all Missourians.
HCS/HBs 116 & 569 (Burlison) contains the so-called “Right-to-Work” proposal and amendments are pending to add the Paycheck Deception proposal.  Once the Senate forces a vote, the House is likely to quickly take the bill up later today.
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.
Paycheck Deception would apply to most public labor organizations and require annual authorization for payroll deduction of member contributions for dues and for political action.
PLEASE CALL, WRITE OR USE THE LINK BELOW TO SEND AN E-MAIL TO URGE YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE TO OPPOSE HCS/HBS 116 AND 569.

http://www.capwiz.com/nea/mo/issues/alert/?alertid=64057071&type=ST

The Association opposes HCS/HBs 116 and 569. 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.
