Idaho's "right-to-work' law temporarily blocked

Idaho became the 21st State to enact a "right-to-work' law, but union leaders won a court order temporarily blocking implementation of the law. The labor leaders contended that the law was illegal because it was to become effective immediately, thwarting the citizens' right to a referendum on all laws passed by the legislature.

Under the Idaho law, employers would be prohibited from entering into agreements with unions under which only union members or dues paying workers could be employed.

The last State to enact a right-to-work law was Louisiana, in 1976.
