Maryland HB743: Right to Work (for LESS)
Posted On: Mar 25, 2011

March 25 - The right-to-work legislation (and its companion bill, SB 660) would prohibit an employer from refusing to employ or continue to employ an individual based on membership or nonmembership in a labor organization; prohibits an employer from requiring an individual to refrain from joining or from requiring an individual to become a member of a labor organization; prohibits an employer from requiring an individual to pay specified charges to a labor organization.  

The house bill (HB 743) was referred to the Economic Matters Committee February 10, 2011. The committee issued an Unfavorable Report March 15.

Attacks on working families and their unions continue around the nation. Right-to-work legislation has been introduced in Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia.
