The state House has given final approval to a bill regarding collection of public employee union dues which supporters are calling “paycheck protection.”
The bill would require annual written permission from a public employee before union dues or fees could be deducted out of his or her paycheck.
Opponents say the bill is a form of deception to weaken the working class and call it the stepping stone towards right-to-work. Supporters argue that union politics should not be imposed on all state workers.
The bill passed in the House with a veto-proof majority, 110-47. It has not yet been scheduled on the Senate calendar.
