MEMA Formally Opposes Proposed Labor Law that Would Strip Workers of Some Hard-Earned Rights

Date: May 14, 2019

MEMA has formally opposed a proposed federal law that would eliminate the rights of workers to vote in union elections privately and strip Right-to-Work provisions, even in states that have already passed Right-to-Work laws.
In a letter to Reps. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) and Tim Walberg (R-Mich.), who lead the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions within the Committee on Education and Labor, MEMA argues that the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (H.R. 2474) threatens the balance between the right to organize and a workers’ right to opt out of labor organizations or vote in their elections secretly.
