    Default Kentucky House panel shoots down two Senate bills opposed by Kentucky unions


    FRANKFORT — Union workers flooded the state Capitol on Thursday to express their disdain for bills that would allow people to work for unionized employers without joining the union and repeal the prevailing-wage requirement for school construction projects.

    They liked what they heard in the House Labor and Industry Committee.

    The panel overwhelmingly voted down Senate Bill 1, the so-called right-to-work bill sponsored by Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, and SB 9, the prevailing-wage measure sponsored by Sen. Wil Schroder, R-Campbell County.

    The two bills received the same treatment in the committee last year.

    "One difference between Custer and me: I knew the outcome. He didn't," Stivers said after the committee vote, referring to Gen. George Custer's defeat at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana in 1876.

    Oldham considers 'right-to-work' ordinance

    This is just so stupid. I don't know what else to call it!
    Some Oldham officials are hoping a proposed 'right-to-work' ordinance — which would prohibit mandatory union involvement as a condition of employment — could be the solution to a business park that, a decade after its $20 million purchase, "hasn't had the success the people who started it had initially hoped for," said Judge-Executive David Voegele.

    Oldham Reserve, which has only attracted one business since its 2005 purchase, was originally promoted as a catalyst for job creation in the county
    Unlike neighboring states like Indiana and Tennessee, Kentucky has yet to pass a state-wide right-to-work law. The likelihood of passage in the state's Democratic House is "slim to none," House Speaker Greg Stumbo said previously, so passage at the county level has become increasingly important for proponents of right-to-work measures.

    NLRB Files Brief Supporting Unions' Lawsuit, Calling County Right-to-Work Laws Preempted

    April 21 - The National Labor Relations Board April 17 urged a federal district court in Kentucky to invalidate a county ordinance that prohibits the use of union-security provisions in collective bargaining agreements and regulates other practices that are either permitted or prohibited by federal law.

    Hardin County's Ordinance 300 is preempted by the National Labor Relations Act, the board argued in a proposed amicus brief it submitted to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. The court is considering a lawsuit the United Auto Workers and other unions filed in January to challenge the ordinance.

    The brief contended that while Section 14(b) of the NLRA allows states or territories to prohibit union-security agreements, it does not authorize counties or political subdivisions to adopt similar measures, which the board said are preempted by federal labor law.

    Court Date Set to Hear Right-to-Work Suit Against Hardin County
    A court date has been set for a judge to hear arguments in a right-to-work lawsuit against Hardin County.

    Oral arguments will take place in U.S. District Court in Louisville on August 4th.

    The lawsuit challenges a local right-to-work ordinance approved January 13th by Hardin Fiscal Court.

    A group of labor unions filed a federal lawsuit to stop the measure.

    Default Case to Watch: Judge to rule on Kentucky county's right-to-work law

    Unfortunately I cannot access full story but there is enough of it here for us to know what is going on and I think it is important to post this.

    A federal judge is poised to rule on a union challenge to a Kentucky county's right-to-work ordinance, in a closely watched case testing the legality of local bans on union security agreements.

    Twenty-five states have right-to-work laws prohibiting provisions in collective bargaining agreements calling on workers to pay money to labor unions as a condition of employment. But Kentucky, which has no statewide right-to-work law, became a testing ground for local laws earlier this year after Warren County passed the nation's only county right-to-work ordinance in December 2014 and eleven other counties in the state soon followed suit with nearly identical measures. In January, a coalition of unions challenged the ordinance in Hardin County, arguing in federal court that it's preempted by federal labor law.
