Hoosier citizens contest spurious union legal challenge
Crown Point, IN (January 14, 2014) – Two Indiana citizens have submitted an amicus curiae brief to defend Indiana's Right to Work law from a union legal challenge pending in state court.
The two workers, Douglas Richards and David Brubaker, filed the brief with free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys. The brief was filed together with the National Federation of Independent Business Small Business Legal Center.
The case is a lawsuit filed by the United Steelworker (USW) union that makes a number of dubious claims about Indiana's recently-enacted Right to Work law, including the argument that unions have a right to force workers to pay for their unwanted services.
