if an employer is in a Right to Work state, Can a union create a contract with an employer that requires the employer only keep union employees on payroll?


The Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 banned "closed shop" union agreements in the USA, which is where an employer agrees to only hire union members and only keep union members on the payroll.

So, no.

(though there are examples of unions that are effectively closed shop, and the Wikipedia article gives a few examples)
