Maine Voices: ‘Right to work’ in 2011 echoes past campaigns against organized labor | The Portland Press Herald

A great article about how Right To Work came to be. It talks about the continuing efforts to strike down at the Labor Unions power in Collective Bargaining.

Maine Voices: ‘Right to work’ : “Apprehension abounds in labor circles that such calls — grafted to the current political climate of austerity — are, and will continue to be, utilized to disguise the efforts of labor’s ideological opponents to strike another blow to the collective power of workers to protect and enhance their interests, and simultaneously weaken the Democratic Party, which some perceive to be synonymous with organized labor.

Labor Day celebrants will be reminded that the resurgence of the “right to work” movement, which has deep roots in history, forms a cardinal component of the new offensive against organized labor.”
