What are right to work laws?
Right-To-Work laws concern union agreements. In Right-To-Work states, employees at unionized companies are not required to join a union in order to work there. However, these non-unionized workers are often entitled to receive the same benefits as unionized workers.
West Virginia’s Right-To-Work laws have been the source of constant debate since they were first enacted in 2016. A West Virginia judge blocked the state’s Right-To-Work law from going into effect. Then West Virginia’s Supreme Court ruled that the law is constitutional.
If the law ultimately goes into effect, workers could choose whether or not they want to join a union, even if they work at a unionized company. Many labor unions contend that such laws reduce their ability to effectively negotiate on behalf of workers.
