In December, Warren County became the first Kentucky county to approve a right-to-work ordinance that forbids requiring any employee covered under the National Labor Relations Act to join a union, or refrain from joining a union, as a condition of employment, or requiring an employee to pay fees or dues to a union as a condition of employment. Other counties followed and soon, lawsuits were filed to stop the efforts.
