National Right to Work Act
The National Right to Work Committee supports the enactment of a National Right to Work Act. The passage of a National Right to Work law would eliminate compulsory unionism in every state in the United States. Employees would be free to choose whether or not to join a labor union. The National Right to Work Act would not add a single word to federal law. It would simply repeal five provisions in the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and one in the Railway Labor Act (RLA) that authorize the firing of workers for refusal to pay union dues or “fees” to union officials.
Under the National Right to Work Act, workers would be free to for themselves whether a union deserves their financial support. No worker would be forced to pay for unwanted union “representation,” and no worker would be prevented from joining a labor union.
