YOU HAVE THE “RIGHT” TO WORK FOR LESS: In the Fall 2017 California Faculty magazine, which is online and available in print from your campus CFA Chapter office, check out a commentary about so-called right-to-work laws by CFA Membership & Organizing Chair D.D. Wills.

In “Right to Work is Wrong for Faculty,” Wills points out these are really Work-for-LESS laws, and are part of a broad attack on public worker unions to weaken their power to bargain fair contracts, thereby rolling back benefits, pay and what influence we have over our own work lives. If an upcoming Supreme Court decision makes this policy national, those who lose out will include college faculty in public colleges and universities like the CSU.
