A proposed Right To Work law in the Wisconsin legislature passed the Senate on a 17 – 15 vote and was sent to the Assembly for its deliberation. The Right to Work bill, which is expected to pass the Assembly and will be signed by Governor Scott Walker, prohibits any employer from requiring the payment of union dues as a condition of employment. All of organized labor, even including the NFL players association, opposed the measure. Existing union contracts will not be impacted by the law, which takes effect upon signature by the Governor. Governor Walker is considered a likely candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Twenty-four other states currently have Right To Work laws on the books.
