Forget Right to Work...Gov. Ritter Owes the Unions Too Much

There is a big labor battle booming in Colorado between Independence Institute head Jon Caldara and Gov. Bill Ritter (D).

Caldara is pushing an initative on the ballot that will no longer allow state and local governments to pull union dues directly from workers paychecks. Caldara recently offered Ritter deal to remove his ballot intiative if Ritter rescinded the executive order granting those rights.

Ritter says, “For his offer, I would simply decline.”

Wow. When you’re against Right to Work and love promoting the fact that you think the state and the unions should be able to take dues directly from the paychecks of your workers – you are my friend the antithesis of [worker freedom] (www.workerfreedom.org).
