Wisconsin Judge Just Struck Down Scott Walker’s Prized ‘Right To Work’ Law

Dane County judge issues final order declaring right-to-work unconstitutional

A Dane County judge on Friday formally barred the state from enforcing Wisconsin’s right-to-work law, finalizing a decision he handed down last week and setting the stage for state attorneys to appeal.

Attorney General Brad Schimel said the state will seek a stay of the ruling and appeal the decision next week.

Circuit Judge William Foust last week struck down parts of the right-to-work law, which prohibits unions and employers from entering agreements that require all employees to pay fees to a union, either in the form of membership dues or “fair share” payments for those who opt out of joining a union but are still represented by it. Foust said the law unconstitutionally takes union property without compensation.

On Friday, he issued a final order on his decision after the unions that sued the state and the state Department of Justice made dueling proposals on final order language, and about a year after the law took effect.
