A bill that sparked some debate in the Senate has made its way to the House of Delegates. It would make changes to the West Virginia Workplace Freedom Act, or the state’s right-to-work law.
The debate over whether West Virginia should be the 26th Right-to-Work state began during last year’s Legislative session.
Right-to-work laws make it illegal to require a worker in a union shop to pay union dues and fees if he or she is not a member.
Union’s argue that worker, however, is still benefiting from the contract negotiations the union pays for, without contributing to the cost.
