South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson is leading a 14-state coalition of attorneys general in opposition to a bill that would compel workers to join unions.
The bill, "Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2021," or PRO Act, would negate state right-to-work laws and require workers to pay union dues in order to keep their jobs.
"Our nation has always been one of opportunity that rewards individual choice, ingenuity, and initiative," Wilson said in a letter signed by 13 other state attorneys general. "Our laws have long preserved the ability of employees to speak for themselves, to make informed decisions, and to work without being forced to pay fees to third parties."
