Protecting North Carolina’s Right-to-Work Status

With a spike in union activity nationwide, it has become more important than ever for the aligned business community to recognize the importance of right to work for the health of our competitive business climate. As outlined in North Carolina Vision 2030, our state’s right-to-work status has played a key role in its history as a regional economic leader. Our state is always a top contender in competitiveness rankings, most recently North Carolina was named America’s 2022 and 2023 Top State for Business by CNBC. These recognitions are a validation of our collaboration with policymakers on behalf of North Carolina’s job creators.

In order to be as competitive as possible in attracting new companies and enhancing the economic prospects of all those that call our state home, the NC Chamber will always fight to protect North Carolina’s status as a right-to-work state.
