MADISON, Wis. — While big labor and the politicians who love their money paint doomsday scenarios should Wisconsin become the nation’s 25th right-to-work state, at least one top national union leader says there is little harm in giving workers the right to choose.
“This is something I’ve never understood, that people think right to work hurts unions,” Casteel said in February, according to a July 1 piece in the Washington Post. “To me, it helps them.”
HURTS SO GOOD: Gary Casteel, secretary-treasurer of the United Auto Workers, has said that he has “never understood” why people think right to work hurts labor unions.
