‘Right to Work’ for Less Measure Fails In Virginia Senate

Reposted from the AFL-CIO NOW Blog

In a victory for Virginia’s working families, a ‘right to work’ for less measure has failed in the state senate on a 20-20 tie vote.  The vote was a straight party-line vote and Republicans failed to convince any Democrats to join them, which they would have needed to get the majority vote that would’ve added right to work to the state constitution.  Adding right to work to the constitution would have further entrenched a harmful policy already existing in Virginia state law.
