Right-to-work expansion laws overturned

Right-to-work expansion laws overturned

Two bills passed by the Idaho Legislature during the 2011 session have been overturned. SB 1006 and SB 1007 sought to expand the right-to-work law in Idaho, effectively banning project labor agreements and job targeting programs.

U.S. District Judge Lynn Winmill said that “Nothing about a job targeting program … makes union membership compulsory. Because Idaho is a right-to-work state, membership in any local in Idaho is entirely voluntary.”
