Kelsey Seeks to Add ‘Right to Work’ to State Constitution

State Sen. Brian Kelsey, R-Memphis, is helping lead an effort to add Tennessee’s Right to Work law (enacted in 1947) to the state constitution, the Daily Memphian reports. Senate Joint Resolution 648 would add language to the constitution making it unlawful to deny employment based on membership in, affiliation with, resignation from or refusal to join a labor union or employee organization. To take effect, the resolution would have to pass in two sessions of the General Assembly and then be approved by a majority of voters in the following gubernatorial election.
