JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri House has endorsed legislation that would require annual written authorization for public employee unions to receive dues automatically deducted from a worker’s paycheck.
The measure endorsed Monday evening would require similar approval for unions to spend worker fees on political activities.
 
Supporters argued it gives public employees more control over how unions spend their fees. Opponents say it would be an undue burden on those who want to participate in a union.
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed similar legislation last year. To avoid another veto, this year’s Republican-supported measure would head to the August ballot instead.
 
The bill, known to supporters as “paycheck protection,” needs one more vote before moving to the Senate. It does not apply to unions representing first responders, such as police and firefighter organizations.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee is scheduled to consider legislation that would change the ability of certain public employee labor unions to collect fees.
The Workforce Development and Workforce Safety Committee is expected to hear public testimony Monday on the measure its supporters call "paycheck protection."
The bill would prohibit a union from receiving fees that are deducted automatically from a public employee's paycheck. It would also require unions to get written authorization to spend a person's fees on political activities.
Unions representing "first responders," such as police and firefighters, would not be affected by the bill.
The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a similar bill last year, but it was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
