FRANKFROT, Ky. (LEX 18)– The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the state’s ‘Right to Work’ law.

These laws ban labor unions from collecting mandatory dues from workers.

Kentucky’s law went into effect in January 2017.

Labor unions argued it violated the state’s constitutional ban on laws that unfairly target a specific group of people.

The court ruled the law is not discriminatory because it applies to all employees and employers, with a few exceptions.
