The Constitutional Challenge to Act 10 is Serious

The Constitutional Challenge to Act 10 is Serious

“There is no constitutional requirement that the state government bargain with public employee unions at all.  However, once the state government decides to bargain, it may not do so under rules that penalize membership in particular unions.  By arguing that Act 10 applies different treatment to public safety unions than it does to more general public employee unions, the plaintiffs have raised legitimate constitutional claims that often have been decided by the courts on very fact-specific grounds.  In this regard, Judge Colas’ ruling is neither exceptional nor unprecedented.”
