The United Steelworkers Union is taking the state’s right-to-work law to court. Lawyers representing the state and the United Steelworkers Union argued the issue Tuesday in a Lake County courtroom.
The United Steelworkers Union lawsuit says the law requires unions to represent workers who are receiving the benefits of union membership without contributing union dues.
State attorneys say the right-to-work law does not require the union to provide services for non-members and say the case should be dismissed. Both sides will have to wait 30 days for the judge to make a decision.
