TOLEDO, Ohio - Hemmed in by a growing number of states that block mandatory union fees in workplaces, holdout states in the Midwest are facing renewed attempts to enact so-called right-to-work laws. Missouri's new law will go to a statewide referendum in November, while a pair of Republican lawmakers in Ohio announced last month they want to put the issue before voters in two years. With many of their neighboring states - some with deep ties to organized labor - already adopting right-to-work laws, the question is whether unions and their Democratic supporters will able to stop the next domino from falling. In a right-to-work state, employees can't be required to pay union dues or fees.
