On September 2, the federal Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Indiana's right-to-work law as constitutional in a 2-1 vote. The law bans mandatory union membership and dues in Indiana. The law was passed in 2012 after the Indiana Right-to-Work Act was passed by the Indiana General Assembly and then-Governor Mitch Daniels signed it into law.

The majority opinion was authored by IndyBar member and Circuit Judge John Tinder. Judge Daniel Manion was also in the majority, with Judge Diane Wood dissenting. To read the decision, click here.

Following this ruling, the case will head to the Indiana Supreme Court.
