Oppose Right-to-Work

Vote NO on Ballot Referendum #1


Question #1 is bad for Virginia families because it even further tips the scales in favor of big corporations and the wealthy few and away from workers. If we’re going to build a Virginia that works for everyone, we have to stop stacking the deck against working families and start protecting workers, not just corporate profits.
Question #1 would enshrine in our constitution a rule that makes it optional for workers protected by a union contract to help pay for the expenses the union incurred while guaranteeing the rights of all employees. It’s a big deal because limiting union resources and weakening the ability of workers to have a say about their jobs drives down everyone’s wages and benefits.
Vote no on Question #1 so we can get back to work growing our economy from the middle out, not the top down.
