Missouri, which had previously become a “right to work” state back in February 2017 when Governor Eric Greitens signed it into law, will have the voters deciding the issue again in the August primary election this year. Organized labor and other right to work opponents initiated a petition campaign over a year ago to suspend legislative approval of the right to work law and put it before the voters. They succeeded in meeting the requisite signature challenge and consequently the law was suspended pending voter ratification via the ballot. Proponents of the suspension petition wanted the issue presented to voters in November, but the republican-controlled legislature chose to include the question on the lower-turnout primary election ballot scheduled for August 7, 2018.
