VITAL POLICY – Local Businesses Encouraged to Promote Yes on 1 Initiative with Window Stickers and Signs

Constitutional Amendment up for Vote on November Election

Right-to-Work has been law in Tennessee since 1947. Right-to-work simply means workers cannot be fired or penalized for joining or refusing to join a union and pay union dues. On November 8, 2022, Tennessee voters will decide if Right-to-Work becomes a constitutional right under the state constitution.

The proposed amendment reads as follows:

It is unlawful for any person, corporation, association, or this state or its political subdivisions to deny or attempt to deny employment to any person by reason of the person’s membership in, affiliation with, resignation from, or refusal to join or affiliate with any labor union or employee organization.”

Businesses that support Right-to-Work in Tennessee are encouraged to visit the following link to obtain a window sticker or sign to promote the amendment.
