- Round two of the right-to-work fight is set to begin at the Wisconsin Capitol.
The state Assembly labor committee is set to hold a 10-hour hearing Monday about the right-to-work bill that rapidly passed in the Senate last week. Assembly Republicans planned to start the day with a news conference and then convene the hearing.
The full Assembly is expected to vote on the bill on Thursday.
Twenty-four other states have passed similar legislation, which prohibits businesses and unions from reaching agreements requiring all workers, not just union members, to pay union dues.
The bill's supporters say workers should be able to decide if they want to join a union. Opponents contend it will reduce worker pay and allow non-union members to benefit from union protections and benefits.
