Unions expected to protest Right to Work in West Chester

WEST CHESTER TWP. -- Hundreds of union workers and representatives are planning to converge on a West Chester Twp. trustee meeting tonight to protest a “Right to Work” proposal, but only people with direct ties to the township will be allowed to speak.

A recent federal appeals court opinion opened up “Right to Work” status to cities and limited home rule townships. Previously only states — there are 26 of them and Ohio is not one — had the ability to make that designation.

But a new development in the court case that allowed the township to consider adopting the designation however could make the issue moot, at least for now.

Trustee George Lang said he plans to announce early in the meeting he wants the “Right to Work” issue put on hold until the federal court — at the request of unions — decides if it will reconsider the decision.
