Right to work
Arizona does have a right to work law. No one can be compelled to join a union, nor can employment be withheld because of membership or non-membership in a union, and further that it is a matter of choice for employer, employee and the production.
The state invalidates employment agreements not to join, become, or remain member of labor or employers’ organization.
Arizona also gives public safety employees serving any city, town, county or fire district in the state the right to join employee associations that comply with the laws of the state. A person shall not be discharged, disciplined or discriminated against because of the exercise of these rights.
Under Arizona statute, it is unlawful for a labor organization to picket any establishment unless there exists between the employer and the majority of employees of such establishment a bona fide dispute regarding wages or working conditions.
Arizona has specific labor relations rules for agricultural employment in 23-1381 through 23-1395, of the Arizona Revised Statutes.
