Florida Right to Work Laws
Statutes commonly known as "right-to-work" laws require labor unions to also allow the hiring of non-union employees. Generally speaking, these laws prohibit union status (whether someone is a union member or non-union) as a requirement for a job. Florida has such a law on the books in its Constitution, which states that employees right to bargain collectively through a labor union shall not be denied or abridged. The Constitution further denies state employees the right to strike.
