DOVER, Del. (AP) - Private-sector workers in Delaware could be forced to join a labor union in order to get or keep a job under legislation passed by the General Assembly.

The Democratically led House on Thursday voted 25-13 to approve the bill, which cleared the Democrat-led Senate last month. The legislation now goes to Democratic Gov. John Carney.

The bill permits private sector labor organizations and employers to enter into union security agreements to the extent allowed under federal law.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Private-sector workers in Delaware could be forced to join a labor union in order to get or keep a job under legislation being considered in the General Assembly.

A bill to be voted on Tuesday in the Senate permits private sector labor organizations and employers to enter into union security agreements to the extent allowed under federal law.

That means an employer or a labor organization could require membership in a labor organization as a condition of employment.
