Union Demands Ousted Former President Pull Ad Supporting Right to Work

One of Missouri’s largest public-sector unions is demanding its former president pull an ad supporting right to work.

Retired St. Louis Police sergeant Gary Wiegert urged voters to support Proposition A, which would ban employers from mandating union membership dues or fees as a condition of employment. Wiegert, the former head of the St. Louis Police Officers Association, criticized “out of touch union officials” for “lying to you about Prop A.”
