West Virginia passed right-to-work legislation just over one year ago, becoming the 26th state to do so, but there seemed to be a problem with their drafting. A judicial challenge was initiated against the law by the West Virginia AFL-CIO and 11 other local unions in which labor alleged that the law constituted an illegal taking of union property (dues) and that it needed to be clarified because it seemingly exempted construction and trade unions from its provisions. A preliminary injunction was issued against the law in August, just weeks after it became effective on July 1, 2016. In response, the West Virginia legislature went to work in clarifying the legislation and at the end of February approved Senate Bill 330, which retroactively clarified the right to work law. This week, democratic Governor Jim Justice cited the ongoing litigation as justification and vetoed the clarifying legislation. In a press release announcing his veto, Governor Justice said the state “doesn’t need to meddle in the pending litigation” and that this “issue is for the state Supreme Court to decide.” We’ll keep an eye on this right to work litigation in the Mountain State.
