NEW YORK, NY (August 8, 2018) — The Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) celebrates with the courageous people of Missouri who stood up to wealthy special interests by voting NO on Proposition A, defeating a coordinated corporate campaign to make Missouri the nation’s newest so-called “right-to-work” state. If passed, the ballot measure would have decimated wages, benefits, and rights in Missouri’s workplaces—while failing to deliver on its proponents’ promises of more jobs, higher wages, and more freedom for workers. Though the fully-fledged corporate assault on working people’s rights marches onward, we applaud the everyday Missourians who turned out to vote against this disastrous policy, which threatened to reverse the gains in wages, benefits, and rights that were fought for and won by workers committed to fairer, safer and more equal workplaces.
