Senator Gina Walsh

Pro-Labor Incumbents Thwart Override

Brothers and Sisters.

     We were happy to welcome Missouri State Senator Gina Walsh this past Friday (September 18, 2015) to thank her for protecting the working men and women of Missouri from legislation that threatens our standard of living. Thanks to Senator Walsh and others like her, there will be no override of Governor Jay Nixon’s VETO on HB116, the so-called Right-To-Work legislation introduced by Representative Eric Burlison, a Republican from Springfield. Labor-friendly republicans in the Missouri House stood firm on their original votes despite the machinations of anti-worker groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council, who originally drafted this legislation for promotion across the country. 

Please take the time to thank your State Representative for sustaining their vote.  Page 19 of this document lists Representatives who voted to sustain the VETO (Noes). You can find your legislator here.

We would also like to recognize the lobbying efforts of former State Senator and Brother Timothy Green. 

Thank you in advance and be prepared to continue to fight this anti-worker legislation in the future. 


In Unity,

Frank D Jacobs
