Democrats sponsor breakfast on ‘dangers’ of right to work legislation

JOPLIN, Mo. — Speakers at a Saturday breakfast sponsored by Southwest Missouri Democrats will outline what they say are the “dangers of right-to-work” legislation being pushed in the Missouri General Assembly.

Three labor union representatives will be featured at the event titled “Right to Work: Wrong for Missouri,” which is set for 9 a.m. at the Joplin Community Center, 110 Main St.

A number of right to work bills have been introduced this session of the Missouri General Assembly by members of a Republican majority that is veto-proof in both chambers. A measure aimed at making Missouri the nation’s 25th right-to-work state was the subject of heated debate last week before the House Workforce Development and Workplace Safety Committee.

Speakers at the event will be Jim Kabell, of the Teamster’s Union; Archie Robbins, of Allied Industrial Workers; and Stacey Salmon, of Laborers International Union of North America.

The breakfast is free but donations will be accepted to cover costs.
