“Prior to last year the conventional wisdom was that a political subdivision of a state did not have the authority to pass a right to work ordinance such as this ordinance,” said G. Kevin Fasic, an attorney whose Wilmington firm is a member of the Associated Builders and Contractors Delaware Chapter.
“That conventional wisdom has changed by a decision on 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in November of last year which held that a political subdivision such as a county municipality does have the ability under the National Labor Relations Act to pass right to work legislation.”
In Sussex County, Mr. Arlett’s attempt to introduce a right to work ordinance is on hold for at least one week.
