RE: 2017 is right-to-work's watershed year
Here are some additional examples of why passing a Right-To-Work law to end Forced Unionism is a good idea for Maine:

LOWMAN S. HENRY: Turning optimism into progress

“Right-to-work means that employees may join a labor union if they want to, but are not required to do so as a condition of employment. That basic reform has triggered an economic resurgence in Wisconsin.”

More proof that passing a Right-To-Work law could help Maine:


Gov. Bevin: Aluminum rolling mill will bring 550 jobs to eastern Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Republican Gov. Matt Bevin announced on Wednesday that a new $1.3 billion aluminum rolling mill will come to Eastern Kentucky creating 550 jobs.

"If Kentucky wasn't a right-to-work state, it wouldn't have been on the list," said Craig Bouchard, who is the Chairman and CEO of Braidy Industries.

Braidy Industries announces $1.3B for new aluminum plant in Greenup County

“Braidy Industries CEO Craig Bouchard said the Delaware-based company will employ 550 workers with average pay of about $70,000 per year at the new facility, which will be built in South Shore and ultimately produce an estimated 20 percent of sheet aluminum for carmakers.

Bouchard credited the General Assembly’s passage of a right-to-work bill, House Bill 1, during this year’s legislative session and said prospective locations in Kentucky would not have made the cut without the new law.

“If Kentucky was not a right-to-work state, you wouldn’t have gotten on the list because it’s so important to us,” he said.”

RE: 2017 is right-to-work's watershed year
Here's another positive example of how passing a RTW law can help a state's economy:


Let's Talk Business: Right to Work
By Shad Burner

“On Monday, Feb. 6, Missouri became the 28th state to pass Right to Work legislation.”

In the months since, we have been approached by two manufacturers that currently have operations in other states. They both indicated that since Missouri is set to become a Right to Work state, they would like to open another facility in the Cape Girardeau area.

We are still in early stages of this recruitment process, but this could potentially bring hundreds of jobs to our region. For those of us in economic development, Right to Work has always been a competitiveness issue. It’s impossible to know how many businesses passed us up over the years simply because we couldn’t check that box. And we’re encouraged to see that hurdle moving behind us.”

------------------------------
BTW, “Shad Burner is the Vice President of Business Development for the Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce. He serves as the Chamber’s lead in the areas of business retention, workforce development, entrepreneurship, talent attraction, and health and human services. He serves on the public policy and business recruitment teams at the Chamber. He is also on the state board for the Missouri Economic Development Council.

Burner holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications: public relations and a master’s degree in higher education administration from Southeast Missouri State University. He lives in Cape Girardeau, Mo., with his wife, Layne, and two children.”

"The law required car-wash companies to post bonds as a guarantee against such abuses — but it ordered nonunion ones to fork over $150,000, far more than the $30,000 demanded of unionized firms."

"The entire drive is a pet cause of Stuart Applebaum, the politically powerful boss of the RWDSU. He has a long record of preferring “no jobs” to nonunion ones; here he joined with advocates for illegal immigrants (many carwasheros are undocumented) to persuade the City Council to stack the deck."

RE: 2017 is right-to-work's watershed year
Here are two new articles to illustrate why Maine should pass a Right-To-Work law like LD 65 this year:

New right-to-work law already paying dividends with new jobs
June 14, 2017

“Kentucky’s new right-to-work law, passed during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly and immediately signed into law by Gov. Matt Bevin, means that workers can no longer be forced to join a union or pay union dues to work at a company that is represented by a labor union.

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce has supported this legislation for decades. During this time, all other Southern states — our direct competitors — passed right-to-work laws. Indiana became a right to work state in 2012, meaning Kentucky was virtually surrounded with stiff pro-business competition for jobs. Add laws in Michigan and West Virginia to the mix, and Kentucky was clearly a conspicuous outlier in this much-needed area of reform.

But Kentucky has now joined the ranks of 27 other states with right-to-work laws. These states report faster per capita income growth, faster progress in manufacturing and non-agricultural jobs, greater capital expenditures, lower unemployment and fewer work stoppages.”

Chances are if your local senator is a Progressive, they benefit from the union forced dues and you are SOL

There's some very interesting news about this topic of Forced Unionism, and how it has been used to finance the progressive/socialist movement for many years, posted at https://www.freedomfoundation.com/litiga...-v-afscme/

RE: 2017 is right-to-work's watershed year
There's a great new report that just came out, and it will be hard for any of the socialists and/or RINOs to dispute these facts in support of passing a Right-To-Work law.

In particular, the Maine RINOs who really need to be reminded about this important issue are:
Senator Susan Collins;
Sen. Tom Saviello;
Sen. Roger Katz;
Rep. Matt Pouliot;
Sen. Scott Cyrway;
Sen. David Woodsome;
Sen. Dana Dow;
Sen. Kimberley Rosen;
Rep. Tim Theriault;
Rep. Jeffrey Pierce
and Rep. Dick Campbell.
