The union says that because right-to-work “requires dues-paying members to work alongside non-union personnel,” union members are subject to slavery.

“Compulsory membership and coerced dues and fees are the hallmarks of the union movement, yet they claim that giving workers more choice is an act of enslavement,” Wright pointed out.
