FAQs – What’s the Right to Work Principle?

The Right to Work principle –- the guiding concept of the National Right to Work Committee –- affirms the right of every American to work for a living without being compelled to affiliate with a union.

Compulsory unionism in any form — including so-called “union,” “closed,” and “agency” shops or union monopoly bargaining contracts –-contradicts the Right to Work principle and the fundamental human rights represented by that principle.

Every individual must have the right, but must not be compelled, to join or participate with a labor union.
