Trump Administration Puts Support Behind Right-to-Work Laws

February 6, 2017

The Trump administration reaffirmed support for right-to-work laws, days after House Republicans reintroduced a bill that would prevent unions from requiring nonmembers to pay representation fees.

“The president believes in right to work. He wants to give workers and companies the flexibility to do what’s in the best interest for job creators,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said during the Feb. 3 daily news conference. “Obviously the vice president has been a champion of this as well.”

The National Right to Work Act ( H.R. 785), introduced by Reps. Joe Wilson (S.C.) and Steve King (Iowa), would prohibit “union security” clauses in collective bargaining agreements, which require nonunion members who are covered by the agreements to pay representation fees. The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Robert Pittenger (N.C.) and Jeff Duncan (S.C.), was referred to the Education and the Workforce Committee Feb. 1. Wilson is vice chairman of the committee.
