Lake Co. judge rules state’s right to work law unconstitutional

Source: Fox 59

LAKE COUNTY – A Lake County judge ruled Indiana’s right to work law unconstitutional.

The lawsuit was filed by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150. The union claimed the law violated Article 1, Section 21 of the state’s Constitution, which says “no person’s particular services shall be demanded without just compensation.”

Local 150 argued the right to work law is unconstitutional because it makes it illegal for unions to collect fees for services they are federal required to provide.

In the decision. Judge John M. Sedia of Lake Superior Court said the law makes it “a criminal offense for a union to receive just compensation for particular services federal law demands it provide to employees.” Sedia concluded that, “the Court therefore has no choice but to find that violate Article 1, Section 21 of the Indiana Constitution.”

5. I wish that would spread

but it might just be a peculiarity in the Indiana state constitution that allowed this ruling.

In any case, it's good to see one state back off from being Right to Starve.

27. We'll see whether this holds up

I don't know the state Supreme Court well enough to know whether this ruling has a fighting chance of surviving. I'm not celebrating yet!

34. I would think there would be a way for this to be applied in every RTW state

regardless of their constitution.

The basic premise of the challenge is that a person or business cannot be forced to provide services without compensation.
