HARRISBURG — Republican Gov. Tom Corbett would sign right-to-work legislation if the General Assembly sends him a bill, his spokesman said today.
Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Cranberry, said he expects to introduce legislation in about a month that would ban requiring employees in the public and private sector to join unions as a condition of employment. Unions say such legislation would undercut their efforts even in places with established unionized work forces.

Nonetheless, Metcalfe called it “great” news.
“It certainly gives you a better political stand to move it through the process,” Metcalfe said.
