Did President Obama malign Right to Work Laws?

By Stacy Swimp, The Washington Times

On April 30th, President Obama spoke at the Building and Construction Trades Department Legislative Conference.

In his speech, he expressed that “Right to Work Laws are intended to bar unions from requiring prospective employees to join as a precondition for being hired”. President Obama also alleged that “Right to Work means the right to work for less and less”.

Finally, the President falsely claims that “Right to Work advocates want to end the collective-bargaining rights.”

“Right-to-Work” laws merely seek to prevent “union security” agreements — or contract provisions between union officials and employers making membership or payment of union dues or fees a mandatory condition of employment.
