Paycheck deception bill advances in Missouri, House

Jefferson City – Continuing the assault on workers in the Missouri General Assembly, the House Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Committee on April 10 referred Senate Bill 29 (SB29), a reckless paycheck deception measure, to the House Rules Committee. From there, it is a short procedural step before the bill reaches the full House.

Sponsored by Sen. Dan Brown (R-Rolla), SB29 – deceptively called “paycheck protection” – would require public-employee unions and teachers groups obtain annual written permission from their members before any dues could be automatically be deducted from their paychecks. The bill specifically exempts unions representing police and firefighters.

“It’s a horrible bill,” said Mike Louis, secretary treasure of the Missouri AFL-CIO. “It’s the most discriminatory kind of anti-labor bill there is. It absolutely discriminates against public-sector employees. It takes away rights that they’ve negotiated into an agreement with the stroke of a pen.”

The Missouri AFL-CIO has also set up a hotline that union members and other Missouri residents can call to hear a short message and be connected to their representative to voice their concerns. The number is 888-907-9711.

I urge all Missouri Workers, Union Members, Progressives, Democrats and people with common sense to call their State Reps urging them to oppose this anti worker bill.

1. So private sector union bad, public sector good?

That won't stand. It's discriminatory. Asses.

3. I understand that similar bills

have been struck down by the courts in other states, but this one seems to be progressing along the way as of now. It certainly will be challenged if it does come to pass.

4. It's another ALEC move

A bill like this was being discussed recently in Michigan- looks like it's one of those ALEC anti-labor bills being pushed out.
