Governor J.B Pritzker on Friday signed legislation that bans so-called 'Right to Work' zones. According to the Governor, the new measure won't criminally penalize places in Illinois that pass right to work legislation but the new law does make clear that such legislation violates state law. Those in favor of Right to Work zones say that they will take the matter to the Supreme Court. In a right to work zone, employees are not required to be part of a local union or pay dues to the union for collective bargaining. Without the right to work zone, even employees who are not union members can still be charged union dues.
