The event will include an opportunity to sign the Citizens’ Referendum petition and rally to push back on Missouri’s phony “right-to-work” (for less) law.
White said “Right-to-Work is a RIPOFF” tents will be set up at the ballpark so registered Missouri voters can sign the petition to halt implementation of Missouri’s anti-worker “right-to-work” law and put the measure on the ballot for voters to decide in 2018.
In addition, $4 from every ticket sold will benefit the $5 for the Fight fund to help union members and their families facing financial hardship.
“It’s a great park,” White said. “It’s a minor league team and the tickets aren’t real expensive, so for them to give us $4 for every ticket sold is pretty impressive.”
Five hundred tickets have already been sold for the event. White said the Labor Council is hoping union members will buy 1,000 or more.
“We know what ‘right-to-work’ does and we want to use this as an opportunity to get the word out and get the petition signed,” White said.
The Citizens’ Referendum petition, if successful would put Missouri’s so-called “right-to-work” law scheduled to take effect Aug. 28 on hold until Missouri residents have an opportunity to vote on the measure next year.
