State Representatives Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), Stephen Bloom (R-Cumberland), Jim Cox (R-Berks), Fred Keller (R-Union/Snyder), Jerry Knowles (R-Berks/Schuylkill), and Kathy Rapp (R-Warren), joined by private business-funded Americans for Prosperity, the nonunion Associated Builders and Contractors, National Right to Work Committee, National Federation of Business, PA Chamber of Business and Industry, PA Manufacturers’ Association, Pennsylvanians for Right to Work, Stop Teacher Strikes, and others, plans a Harrisburg news conference today to press Gov. Corbett to follow Michigan's example and pass a "Right to Work" law that would prevent unions from collecting dues from people who don't want to pay them. 
PA establishment Republicans have a long history of working with unions, especially in Senate leader Dom Pileggi's Delaware County. The reps, who mostly represent upstate, rural and elderly districts, are trying to push the GOP to combat remaining labor influence in the state.
