JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee is taking up legislation that would bar union membership or dues as a condition of employment.
The House Workforce Development Committee scheduled a public hearing Wednesday on the bill, which supporters call "right to work."

Approval by the Legislature would put the proposed new law to a statewide vote this November.

Supporters argue the legislation would allow Missouri to be more competitive in the job market. Opponents say it would weaken unions and hinder collective bargaining.
