Nevada is a “Right to Work” state. Does this prevent us from starting a Union at Barrick Gold?

No.

Right-to-work laws do not have anything to do with your right to representation.  Right-to-work is a state law and your right to representation is a federal law.

The state law is actually very anti-worker because it hurts the Union’s ability to bargain on your behalf.
