AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka issued the following statement after several anti-worker bills were defeated in the Missouri legislature:

Defeating the attempt in Missouri to enact so-called ‘Right-to-Work’ and paycheck deception legislation sends a strong signal that working people will stand together to prevail over outrageous attacks on their rights. This victory is a testament to common-sense bipartisanship and a direct blow to corporate interests whose goal is literally to hurt working people. Along with our allies, we’ll continue to build upon our successes and move forward to create better opportunities for all workers.
Missouri reminds us that big corporations and extreme ideologues are relentlessly focusing their money and resources against the interests of workers, and only by fighting back together can we ensure a better life for all Americans.
