NFIB State Director Jim Brown released the following statement on the final passage of Senate Joint Resolution 2, a proposed state constitutional amendment protecting Tennessee’s right-to-work law. SJR 2 passed the House today by a vote of 67-24-1. It passed the Senate earlier in the legislative session:

“Our right-to-work law, in place since 1947, unfortunately, is under attack in Congress with the U.S. House’s recent passage of the PRO Act. Right-to-work simply states that workers have a choice if they want to join a union or not.

“NFIB members across Tennessee believe workers should have that choice, and now Tennessee voters will be able to vote on adding this important constitutional protection in 2022.”
