Missouri voters have voted against Senate Bill 19 on August 7, 2018. If passed, the bill would have made Missouri the 28th state to pass a right to work law.
The bill was originally passed by the Missouri legislature on Feb. 2, 2017, and signed into law by Governor Eric Greitens shortly after.
Missouri’s labor organizations and their supporters quickly gathered signatures to keep the law from going into effect until individual voters were able to weigh-in. These groups were able to submit more than 310,000 signatures (three times the amount needed) to stop it and push the vote to the Missouri primary elections on August 7, 2018.
The law was originally scheduled to be voted on in November 2018 mid-term elections but was moved up due to popular demand.
