Washington Right to Work Laws

So-called "right-to-work" laws prohibit labor contracts that require union membership (or non-memberhip) as a condition of employment, even when the wages and benefits are the direct result of union activity. A number of states, not including Washington, have passed these laws. Therefore, Washington employers and labor unions are free to negotiate contracts that require union membership.
