Union challenges Right to Work law

Feb 27, 2012

The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 has filed a lawsuit challenging Indiana’s Right-to-Work law.

The suit contains ten separate claims that the measure passed by state lawmakers earlier this month violates both the U.S. and Indiana constitutions.

But state attorney general Greg Zoeller says while he respects the union’s right to disagree with the new law, he believes it will stand up in court.

Right to Work is scheduled to take effect March 14th.

The union is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent that from happening until the court case is resolved.
