Minnesota Right To Work Legislation
 "SF No. 1705"

The Minnesota Legislature is considering  a “Right to Work” law.  On 13 March 2012 the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee voted 7 to 6 on Monday to pass the bill (SF No. 1705) on to its next committee stop, ending an emotional four-hour hearing.

The amendment is one page long.  It stipulates that no person shall be required as a condition of obtaining (public sector or private sector) to:

(1) Resign or refrain from membership in, voluntary affiliation with, or voluntary financial support of a labor organization.

(2) Become or remain a member of a labor organization.

(3) Pay any dues, fees, assessments, or other charges of any kind or amount, or provide anything else of value, to a labor organization.

(4) Pay to any charity or other third party an amount equivalent to, or a portion of, dues, fees, assessments, or other charges required of members of a labor organization.

In Minnesota, 15.8 percent of all workers are unionized, compared to 11.8 percent nationally.
