Coercive unionism may be coming to an end in West Virginia despite threats from Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin to veto right to work legislation.


West Virginia could become the 26th right to work state in the country after the House of Delegates passed legislation on Thursday that would prevent companies from requiring union membership as a condition of employment. Delegate Gary Howell, a chief advocate for the bill, said the legislation fits into the pro-growth agenda that led Republicans to take control of the legislature in the traditionally Democratic state.


“It is good for workers in the state because we will have more jobs. We need jobs really bad here,” Howell told the Washington Free Beacon in a phone interview. “We’re going to start attracting manufacturers. Right to work is key to locating businesses.”
