Show-Me Panel Modernizes Labor Law

But union bigs threaten typical thuggery against worker-choice movement
A Missouri Senate panel has advanced legislation that would prevent people from having to pay union fees as a condition of employment.

The legislation cleared the Senate General Laws Committee on a party-line vote Tuesday, with Republicans backing it and Democrats it opposing it. The vote means the bill can now move to the full Senate for debate.

Voters rejected a measure in 1978 that would have made Missouri a "right to work" state. But union membership has declined since then, and Republican lawmakers say the potential for unionized shops discourages some businesses from coming to Missouri.
