Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney both say they disagree with federal law that requires non-union employees to pay union dues at an agency-shop firm.

Workers outside right-to-work states are obliged to pay the union fees as a condition of employment at firms that have unions, which is in accordance with the National Labor Relations Act. But the unions cannot demand membership.

“Federal law should not force workers to pay dues,” Perry spokesman Mark Miner tells The Street.

“Governor Romney does not believe any law should force employees to pay dues as a condition of employment,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told The Street in an email. “Gov. Romney … would sign a national Right-to-Work law if it came across his desk.”
