New Jersey Right to Work Laws

State laws commonly referred to as "right-to-work" laws require labor unions to allow the hiring of non-union workers, even though non-union workers are still entitled to the compensation and terms negotiated by the union. While an increasing number of states have passed these laws, union-heavy states such as New Jersey have no such statutes. Also, New Jersey courts have upheld union agreements that require union membership.
