The April meeting of the Tri-County Labor Club, usually held on the first Tuesday of the month, will be moved to Tuesday, March 28 because of the April 4 election and a legislative conference being held in Washington, DC.
Everyone is urged to attend this very important meeting to discuss the ongoing “right-to-work” fight petition drive and the April election. The meeting is held at the Tri-County Labor Club Hall, 10 Droste Road in St. Charles, behind Tubby’s bowling alley.
If you are unable to attend this meeting, or live outside of St. Charles County, please attend the Labor Club meeting in your area.
“With Missouri Governor Eric Greitens signing ‘right-to-work’ legislation into law, our Labor community is busy finalizing plans to stop it before it can impact our unions and our livelihoods,” Tri-County Labor Club President Steve Bailey said. “It’s going to affect everyone in the building trades and Labor community, and we can’t sit down on this one.”
The St. Louis Labor Council is preparing for either a referendum or an initiative petition, to get the issue on the November 2018 ballot, and there is much work to be done.
A referendum would seek to overturn the new law, which takes effect in August. The initiative petition would seek approval of a constitutional amendment banning “right-to-work.”
