Missouri Dems Want To Make It A Felony To Restrict Union Power
Three Missouri Democrats signed on to a bill that would make it illegal for state legislators to even suggest laws limiting unions’ collective bargaining powers.
The legislation was sponsored by Rep. Jeff Roorda. According to the text of the bill, any legislator who proposes restrictions on collective bargaining will be subject to prosecution for a class D felony.
“Any member of the general assembly who proposes a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bargain collectively, as set forth under section 29, article I of the Missouri Constitution, shall be guilty of a class D felony,” reads the text of the bill.
