Missouri governor vetoes bill concerning union dues and public state workers

Updated:

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has vetoed a controversial bill concerning union dues and public state workers.

Under current law union dues for those workers are automatically withdrawn from paychecks.

Under the new legislation workers would have to give annual permission for dues to be taken out of their paychecks.

The measure would also require unions to get yearly consent from members to spend a portion of their fees on political activities.
