Ohio's Republican Treasuerer Josh Mandel says he supports the so-called "right to work" legislation because it's "important for workers to have rights." Josh Mandel doesn't really care about workers' rights: "right to work" laws make Unions weaker- result in less money in workers' pockets, and their jobs less safe. Read more >>>
Video: Welcome to UAW Local 42 in Chattanooga, Tennessee!
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The UAW today announced the formation of UAW Local 42, a new local union providing representation for employees at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga.
Organized by Volkswagen employees, Local 42 offers workers the opportunity for a voice in the workplace through the German automaker’s “works council” approach to employee engagement. Volkswagen’s business model is premised on employee representation, and Local 42 will represent any interested employees who join the local as members. No employees will be required to join.
“Earlier this year, the UAW was gratified to earn the confidence and support of many Volkswagen team members,” said Dennis Williams, president of the UAW. “At that time, we said we would not give up on these committed and hard-working employees. We’re keeping our promise.”

So-called right to work laws are wrong for working and middle class families. These laws make paying union dues optional - even though unions are required by law to represent all workers under their agreements. In other words, the laws give people the right to shirk - since all the benefits of a union contract still cover everyone, regardless if they pay dues or not. As a result, unions will have trouble representing members and negotiating contracts because bargaining power will be lost.
The effort to pass a right to shirk law is currently under way in Ohio. Recently these laws were passed in Indiana and Michigan. In Ohio, the same people who wanted to take away our collective bargaing rights with Senate Bill 5 are behind the right to shirk. It's crucial that we educate ourselves and our co-workers, families, neighbors and friends about the truth behind this deceitful effort. When was the last time billionaires spent millions of dollars to give more rights and freedom in the workplace?Read more >>>
