Indiana Right To Work Bill

January 26, 2012 by staff 

Indiana Right To Work Bill, Ignoring shouts from labor union protesters and pleas from Democratic lawmakers, the Republican controlled Indiana House approved a “right to work” bill.

The 54-44 vote, with five Republicans joining 39 Democrats in the nay column Wednesday, means the measure heads to the Senate, where it is expected to pass, The Indianapolis Star reported.

Gov. Mitch Daniels, who presented the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, is expected to sign the bill. If the expected scenario plays out Indiana would become the first Rust Belt state — and the first state in a decade — to adopt a “right to work” bill, which bans companies and unions from negotiating a contract that requires non-members to pay fees for representation, among other things, the Star said.

Rick Vitatoe, a glass workers union member, told the Star the fight isn’t over.

“We’ll fight it over in the Senate. If we lose, we’ll fight it at the ballot polls this November,” he said. “It’s a race toward the bottom is what it is.”
