On Monday morning, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin signed the “right to work” bill, which was passed by the Wisconsin State Assembly on Friday, March 6th. Governor Walker’s signature makes Wisconsin the 25th state to enact a “right to work” law. State “right to work” laws permit workers to choose not to join or pay fees to a union. Wisconsin’s law takes effect immediately, but collective bargaining agreements currently in place will not be impacted until it is time to extend, modify, or renew them.
