3.2  Arkansas Right to Work Law

(Amendment 34 to the Arkansas Constitution, Board Policy 460.1)

The Arkansas Constitution protects you against discrimination in employment because of your membership or non-membership in a labor union. Specifically, the constitution provides that:

No person shall be denied employment because of membership or affiliation with or resignation from a labor union, or because of refusal to join or affiliate with a labor union; nor shall any corporation or individual or association of any kind enter into any contract, written or oral, to exclude from employment members of a labor union or persons who refuse to join a labor union, or because of resignation from a labor union; nor shall any person against his will be compelled to pay dues to any labor organization as a prerequisite to or condition of employment.
