WV Supreme Court Issues Stay for Right to Work Law

West Virginia

The West Virginia Supreme Court has granted Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s request for a stay in the state’s Right to Work fight. 

The controversial labor law was approved by the legislature just more than three years ago but struck down by a circuit court earlier this year. 

The law said employees in a union workplace shouldn’t have to pay dues if they chose not to become union members. 

A circuit judge tossed out the law saying it amounted to the taking of union resources.  

Proponents said it would create more jobs in West Virginia, but unions disagreed.
