West Chester Twp. trustees are introducing some new project for the growing township to tackle in 2017.
West Chester Twp.’s staff and its legal counsel are working on a resolution that will establish the township as a “Right to Work” place, which means private companies and their unions cannot force workers to join unions or pay dues.
“It’s going to make us more attractive to businesses…” township trustee George Lang said.
Board President Mark Welch concurred.
“There is a ton of evidence that says that companies would rather relocate and build their business in Right to Work states,” Welch said. “I think we should move ahead on this as quickly as possible and give potential manufacturers that are looking at Ohio or looking at the region, another reason to come to West Chester.”
