Labor-State Weighs Worker-Choice

Powerful unionists prefer forced-dues, fees
Union activists are gearing up for an expected battle over legislation to make Maine what's known as a "right-to-work" state.

Enforced in 22 other states, right-to-work laws prohibit agreements between trade unions and private sector employers that make union membership and dues a condition of employment.

Such rules, say critics, make it harder for unions to organize, operate and collect dues.

But proponents say they also make states more attractive for business.
