"We must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as 'right to work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining." - Martin Luther King Jr.
An aggressive national campaign, based in Washington, seeks to weaken and ultimately destroy unions by forcing them to represent non-members who do not pay union dues. This is falsely labeled "right to work" by its advocates.
The "right to work" crowd seeks to diminish all unions, even the union construction industry, which in Indiana is a major economic development advantage for our state.
This proposal would result in a lower standard of living for Indiana workers.
By draining funds from the Indiana union construction industry, this proposal would erode and ultimately destroy our world-class training system for highly skilled workers.
States that have implemented these laws tend to have higher rates of poverty and lower rates of education.
In all 50 states, under federal law: No worker can be mandated to join a union. No worker can be mandated to pay union dues. No worker can be mandated to pay political money to a union.
Indiana’s union construction industry is an example for the world. Our contractors and workers together fund a world-class training system. We build the largest, most complex projects on time and on budget. Driven by ideology, “right to work” seeks to fix something that is very much not broken.

Indiana’s union construction industry is an extraordinary example of contractor and worker cooperation and competence.
