Opposition to the Mandatory Union Dues initiated Measure – IM 23 – kicks off

aimazvqxThe Vote No on 23 campaign has kicked off their effort to oppose the labor union initiated measure which would force union dues to be paid by people who have no wish for union registration.

The measure is a response to South Dakota’s status as a right to work state, which has enjoyed increased popularity across the country, allowing people to work without the requirement to join a labor union.   If passed, IM23 would revoke South Dakota’s status as a right to work state, and allow labor unions to force due payments from non-union members.

Vote No on 23 has started their activities in campaigning against the pro-Union measure by going on twitter, Facebook, opening up a site on the web at www.voteno23.net/ and by having No on 23 coalition chairman and Executive Director of the SD Chamber of Commerce David Owen appearing on inside KELOLAND.

      Anonymous…that is not necessarily true…the Unions are the ones that wanted to be able to exclusively negotiate.

      No on 23 for me. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates int he country already, why tinker with a system that already works.

    It is more accurate to call the nonunion workers forced riders rather than free riders or free loaders because, as a previous person pointed out, the unions demanded and received the power to negotiate for all of the workers in shops with non-union employees.
