Vermont introduces right-to-work 'kryptonite' law, the 'Fair Share Bill'

With Missouri, Pennsylvania and other states threatening to go the “Right-to-Work” route this year, Vermont stands out as one of the few states setting the opposite example. With what might be described as an “Anti-Right-to-Work” law, Vermont’s Senate Committee on Economic Development voted 5-0 to introduce a “Fair Share Bill” which would require state workers grandfathered out of paying “agency fees” to do so.

The bill, S.14, is aimed at ensuring that all those who receive the benefits of union representation pay their fair share into the bargaining process.
