Illinois City’s Own Right to Work Ordinance Challenged in 7th Circuit

Last week, Lincolnshire, Illinois defended its Right to Work ordinance before the 7th circuit. A home rule municipality, Lincolnshire is granted additional rights by the state, including the right to enact its own tax revenues within municipal boundaries. It used its home rule authority to pass and enact a Right to Work ordinance in 2016, which would have permitted employees to work in municipal or municipally funded projects in union protected positions without the requirement to join a union. Challenged by four unions, the Court’s decision is expected in a few months.
