Labor groups in Missouri are headed to Jefferson City this morning to push back against a bill that they say is misleading — and threatens the core of basic union organizing. The fight is over the state’s right-to-work proposal, which has already garnered some backlash, despite the fact that it’ll be tough to pass with a Democratic governor in charge.
But there are no guarantees, says Randy Kiser, a staff member of the AFL-CIO who is based in Missouri.
“We are not taking anything for granted,” he tells Daily RFT. And that’s why he and partnering organizations are headed to the Capitol.
