House panel considers bill requiring parental consent for minors to join unions

Published on April 27, 2017 under CommunityImpact

When he was 16, Joe Montemayor joined a union the first day he began sacking groceries at Houston Kroger store in 1998.  “When you’re young and naïve, you need protection,” he told House lawmakers at the Texas Capitol Thursday. “And I didn’t need my parents there to tell me [joining a union] was the right thing to do.”  A House committee Thursday considered House Bill 1987 by state Rep. Tan Parker, R-Flower Mound, which would require parental consent for minors to join a labor union — a measure, Parker said, that was “common-sense policy.”Via Texas Tribune
