The AFL-CIO and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 are attempting to institute a law that would ban right-to-work legislation in the state of Illinois. Specifically, they are looking to bar any law from being passed that “restricts or interferes with the ability of workers to join together and collectively bargain over wages, hours, and terms and conditions of employment.”

The only problem is that Illinois law currently dictates that proposed constitutional amendments must be passed by state legislature at least six months before the next general election in order to make it on the ballot…and these unions are cutting it a little close. They blame COVID-19, of course; and are using the circumstance as the main argument in their petition to an Illinois federal court to lift the requirement.

In similar news, a West Virginia Supreme Court upheld the state’s right-to-work law in a 5-0 decision last month.
