Two union groups have filed a lawsuit to block Kentucky’s new “right-to-work” law.
That law prohibits unions from being able to collect what are known as “fair share fees”.
Those fees are imposed on non-union employees in exchange for the benefits of being in a unionized workplace.
In January, Kentucky became the 27th state to pass such a measure, which supporters say makes the state more competitive when trying to get companies to move to or expand in Kentucky.
Kentucky AFL-CIO president Bill Londrigan said the new law is part of a political strategy to stifle union voices.
