Springfield, VA (September 11, 2013) – The National Right to Work Foundation has received numerous inquiries from concerned Indiana workers after a Lake County judge invalidated the state’s recently enacted Right to Work law.
Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation, released the following statement about the decision and the current status of Indiana’s Right to Work law:
“Despite the Lake County court judge’s ruling, the constitutionality of Right to Work laws has long been a settled question. No worker should ever be forced to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment. National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys plan to file an amicus brief for workers they represent in support of Indiana’s Right to Work law when the case is considered on appeal at the Indiana Supreme Court.
“In the meantime, Indiana’s popular Right to Work law remains in effect while the case is pending on appeal. As such, workers will continue to have the choice to refrain from union membership and dues payments.
“Workers who have questions about their rights or about Indiana’s Right to Work law should contact the National Right to Work Foundation at 1-800-336-3600 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by compulsory unionism abuses. The Foundation, which can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-336-3600, assists thousands of employees in more than 250 cases nationwide per year.
