Missouri voters voted decisively on Tuesday, August 7 when they overwhelmingly rejected a right-to-work (for less) law that would have divided work forces and limited the freedom to negotiate in private-sector workplaces.

Unions gathered enough signatures to send the question to voters. This comes after then-Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican, signed a Republican-backed right-to-work bill that was challenged through a major signature gathering operation put on by the Missouri labor movement.

Seeing the inevitable momentum that came from Missouri working families banding together, Missouri Republicans tried to sneak the vote into the August primary to lessen labor’s momentum. They are also hoping people will forget the GOP’s right to work (for less) support this coming November.
