Paycheck Deception

From Labor Tribune:

The Missouri Senate’s recent vote sustaining Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a paycheck deception bill has proved that one vote really can make a difference.

The 22-10 decision fell one vote shy of the two-thirds majority needed to override the Governor’s veto. Two Republicans – Sens. Ryan Silvey of Kansas City and Gary Romine of Farmington – joined with the chamber’s eight Democrats to oppose the measure.

House Bill 1891 would have required public employees other than first responders to opt in each year for union dues to be taken out of their paychecks, requiring employees such as nurses, teachers, social workers and other public workers to give annual written consent for money to be taken out of their paychecks to support their union.
