(STATEHOUSE) – ANOTHER UNION-LED RALLY IS PLANNED AT THE STATEHOUSE TODAY (Tues.)  A DAY AFTER A REPUBLICAN-LED INDIANA HOUSE COMMITTEE VOTED ALONG PARTY LINES TO ADVANCE THE SO-CALLED RIGHT-TO-WORK LEGISLATION. IT PROHIBITS UNION MEMBERSHIP AND FEES FROM BEING A CONDITION OF EMPLOYMENT. HUNDREDS OF UNION MEMBERS TURNED OUT AT THE STATEHOUSE MONDAY IN PROTEST OF THAT BILL.
