Effects of "right-to-work" laws: A study of the Texas act
AbstractRight-to-work laws comprise statutes which forbid denial of employment by reason of membership or nonmembership in a labor organization; in effect, they constitute a ban against the "union shop." Opinions differ as to the purpose of such laws. Proponents assert that the intent is to protect the freedom of the individual worker to seek and hold employment; opponents claim that the objective is to weaken the strength of unions by reducing their membership and organizational security. In this article, an effort is made to assess the effects of "right-to-work" legislation in the state of Texas on union security. Perhaps the most interesting finding from the study is that unions may and do use a variety of techniques, other than union shop provisions, to acquire and retain members.
