Judge Rules West Virginia RTW Law Unconstitutional
Posted On: Mar 01, 2019
Mar. 1, 2019 | WORKERS' RIGHTS | West Virginia working families won a major victory today, when Kanawha Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey struck down the so-called “Right to Work” law aimed at attacking unions. “Judge Bailey was right-on with her ruling,” West Virginia AFL-CIO President Josh Sword said. “She made it very clear that this bill violates the West Virginia Constitutional rights of unions and individuals with regard to association, property and liberty.” In her order, Judge Bailey agreed with the West Virginia AFL-CIO, the Teamsters and other unions that challenged Senate Bill 1, passed by the Republican majority of the Legislature in 2016, because it violates the West Virginia Constitution’s prohibition of taking property without due process and compensation, as well as unions’ liberty interests….
