Labor Law Breakfast June 14 to address use of ‘Members-Only’ benefits under RTW


So-called “right-to-work” is set to take effect in Missouri on Aug. 28.

While workers are circulating a Citizens’ Referendum petition to halt implementation of this anti-worker law and place the measure on the 2018 ballot for voters to decide, now is the time to prepare for the possibility of  “right-to-work” taking effect.

Sheri Hall, an attorney with Hammond and Shinners law firm, will discuss the relevance of Members-Only benefits as a way of dealing with “right-to-work” at the next Law Breakfast Wednesday, June 14, at IBEW Local 1439 Hall, 2121 59th St., in St. Louis.

Breakfast will be served at 8 a.m., followed by the presentation from 8:30-9:30 a.m.

Hall practices union-side labor law, employment law, and employee benefits law, representing unions and employees primarily in Missouri and Illinois. She has also practiced labor and employment law in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and has lectured on labor and employment law issues at a number of professional meetings and seminars.

The Labor Law Breakfast Series is held on the second Wednesday of each month, and is sponsored by University of Missouri Extension St. Louis County.

The cost is $15 per person (if the $150 annual fee has not been paid) and may be paid at breakfast. To pay beforehand, make checks payable to St. Louis County Extension Council and mail to University of Missouri Extension, 132 E Monroe, St. Louis, MO 63122
