Union strategists said the complexion ot the now Congress is such that labor-wanted measures — like a higher minimum wage, extra jobless benefits and recession curatives — will got mure favorable consideration than they have in recent years. One thing organized labor .will fight for in Congress next, year, union sources said, is repeal' of that section ot tho Taft-Har'tley law known as 14B which permits states to enact right-to-work -laws. These ban the union shop — a labor contract provision, .that requires workers 'to join a union to hpld their jobs. Kansas voters' 1 ' approved a ban on'* the union- shop. Tuesday ,' joining' k "18^othc"r I --'statiis- v \vliicli >' a"hVady" had "such laws on the books. , But right-to-work was voted down handily in' Ohio, California, Washington and Colorado, and lost by a narrow margin in Idaho. Labor unions wanted to avoid at all costs any spread of the right- to-svork principle in the industrial Midwest. Indiana is the only state in that area now having such a law, The other right-to-work states are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North and South 'Dakota, North and South Carolina, Tenncsse, Texas, Utah and Virginia, Union officials calculated today they will have a good chance in the next Congress to repeal tho Taft-rlartley law's Section 14B, but they conceded that PVCII with bigger Democratic majorities in tho lioiiso and Senate it will be closu.
