Bill Caption

Relating to the requirement for parental consent for a minor to join a labor union.

Fiscal Notes

From the Legislative Budget Board: No significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 75 would add to the Labor Code that a labor union may not accept a minor as a member unless a form provided by the Texas Workforce Commission with the signed consent of the minor's parent, conservator, or guardian is obtained.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill increases personal responsibility for the parent, managing conservator, or guardian because minors are not fully capable of charting their own path in life yet and SB 75 gives the parent, conservator, or guardian the ability to guide the minor on the path to best live their life and protect their rights. We support SB 75.
