On February 1, 2017, U.S. House of Representatives members Steve King (R-IA) and Joe Wilson (R-SC) introduced H.R. 785 , the “National Right-to-Work Act”, which would implement a Right-to-Work scheme across the country. The bill applies to all unions covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) or the Railway Labor Act (RLA). If passed, this law would directly impact Members of TWU Local 556 by eliminating the rights of union members to include union security clauses into Collective Bargaining Agreements.
The digital version of the Teal Contract is now available. Both parties are still finalizing the Q&As and these will be added to the document when completed.
