CONTRACTORS LINE UP IN OPPOSITION TO RIGHT TO WORK

The so-called “right to work” bill currently being discussed in Indianapolis would have serious negative consequences on the wages and benefits of workers, but signatory contractors have stepped up with a concern of their own – this law would affect the types of contracts that they would be able to negotiate with their employees.

The “right to work” law would make any contract requiring non-members to pay a fee to the union null and void, and would make requiring “fair share fees”, currently collected from non-members, a criminal offense. Many of our signatory contractors have decried having the State of Indiana dictate what types of agreements they can enter with their employees, saying it is overstepping on the part of the government.

Nearly thirty of Local 150’s signatory contractors have written letters to Governor Mitch Daniels and the legislative leaders pushing this legislation.

By denying the Indiana House of Representatives a caucus and preventing them from doing any business, the boycotting House Democrats have pushed debate on the bill as well as a possible vote into the later part of this week or early next week.
