Illinois Gov. floats local “Right-to-Work” zones

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is distributing a plan for increased local government control to municipalities around the state with the hope that they will pass resolutions of support. His plan, which he calls the “Turnaround Agenda,” calls for legislators in Springfield to pass legislation authorizing “home rule” communities that would be allowed to opt-out of some state laws. The most notable portion of the proposal is permission for local governments to create “employee empowerment zones” where employees would be given the choice whether or not to join a union. Right-To-Work laws have stalled at the state level, so the Agenda’s zones would give the choice to localities. According to the Agenda, “Within an employee empowerment zone, state law would give workers the right to voluntarily join, or refrain from joining, a union. It would be unlawful to condition employment on the obligation to join a union or pay union-related dues within a zone.”
