On Tuesday Missourians voted on whether or not they would uphold or repeal the contested Senate Bill 19 legislation that established a right-to-work law in the state.
Missourians have voted against Proposition A.
Approximately 30% of Missouri voters voted in favor of the proposition, while 70% voted against it.
This is in accordance with the July 10th poll done by the Remington Research Group which showed that 38% of voters would vote yes, while 56% would vote no.
What is Proposition A?
Proposition A is a Right to Work Referendum in the state of Missouri. It determines whether or not Senate Bill 19 will be upheld. Senate Bill 19 established a right-to-work law in the state of Missouri.
This law would mandate that no person can be required to pay dues to labor unions or join a labor union as a condition of employment. Left-leaning people see this as a stomp on the autonomy of unions and a dangerous stab at worker protections. People on the right see it as a blow to the contractual relationships between workers and their employers.
