Indiana Workers Ask to File Amicus Brief Defending Hoosier Right to Work Law

Union lawyers seek to shut workers out of the proceedings

Hammond, IN (April 2, 2012) – Today, a group of Indiana workers from across the state filed a motion for leave to file an amicus brief in federal court in support of their newly-enacted Right to Work freedoms.

With free legal assistance from the National Right to Work Foundation, the four workers – David Bercot, a certified wastewater operator for ITR Concession Company which services Indiana toll road rest stops in the Fort Wayne-area; Joel Tibbetts, a Minteq International assistant manager in Valparaiso; Douglas Richards, an employee with Goshen-based Cequent Towing Products; and Larry Getts, a Dana Holding Corporation tube press technician in Albion – all joined in the brief defending the law against a union-boss challenge.

International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 150 headquartered in suburban Chicago, Illinois filed the federal lawsuit in late February challenging the law and requesting an injunction against its implementation.
