The Right to Work March Continues


Illinois governor Bruce Rauner decided that since there was no way he could get a bill through a Democratic legislature that would effectively make Illinois public sector work right to work, he issued an executive order that forbids public sector unions from collecting fees to replace dues from workers who are not union members. Note that those unions are legally required to defend these workers who would otherwise be free riders and that the contracts they negotiate cover said moochers. Rauner’s action is almost certainly illegal, but it’s unlikely he cares because he probably hopes the Supreme Court will take up the case and rule those fees unconstitutional. Even if this doesn’t happen, the larger goals of taking money away from working people and undermining the Democratic Party by crippling the unions that are so important to its fundraising and GOTV operations move forward which each worker not paying union dues.
