[Milwaukee, Wisc…] A judge in Dane County has struck down Wisconsin’s right-to-work law that prohibits unions from forcing workers to pay union dues.


In his ruling, Judge Faust said because unions provide services for all workers, they should be able to collect dues.

“What the judge says here in this case is that you can’t require the union to provide services when there’s no prospect of them ever being compensated for those services,” said Paul Secunda, a professor and director of the Labor and Law program at Marquette University Law School. “That is an unconstitutional taking.”

Friday’s ruling is getting mixed reviews from workers’ groups. The Wisconsin Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors Association blasted Friday’s decision.

“We’re strong advocates for workers freedom because we believe that every worker should have the freedom to choose whether or not they join a union and pay union dues,” said Nick Novak, the spokesman for ABC.
