AFL-CIO Poll: Hoosiers Want Right To Work Vote

Posted On January 16, 2012

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Indiana AFL-CIO’s latest poll of Indiana voters show that most Hoosiers want to vote on whether Indiana becomes a right to work state.


The Indiana General Assembly is currently considering a right to work bill. House Bill 1001 would prevent unions and companies from having agreements to charge fees to non-union employees.


The AFL-CIO’s poll was conducted among 500 registered Indiana voters January 14 and 15 by Hart Research Associates. It found that 69 percent agreed the Indiana legislature should slow down the process to allow more debate.


The poll also found that 71 percent want the issue to go to a referendum. House Democrats plan to offer an amendment to the right to work bill seeking a statewide vote on Tuesday.


Only 33 percent of Indiana voters currently favor right to work, according to the poll. Another 36 percent oppose the legislation while 30 percent had no opinion on the issue.


The margin of error on the poll is +/- 4.4 percent.
