A vote is sitting in the Indiana House. If won, the vote will make Indiana a right to work state. However, the Republicans are not happy with the possibility of this happening. A sect of Republicans have attacked the proposal through a series of advertisements. These advertisements have been made with the hope of deterring the public from supporting this new bill.

The group, referred to as the Lunchpail Republicans, are attacking the governor’s decision to change his ideals on the right to work proposal. They believe that the governor should have stood strong on his decision instead of changing his mind. So, while this advertisement is working to deter the public from this bill, it’s also attacking the governor personally as well.


Just a few years ago, the governor made a commitment. However, in a recent turn of events, he has upset quite a few people by changing his mind about it. Although his original commitment was nearly eight years ago, it seems that he’s not supposed to have a change of heart about anything. Founder of the Political Action Committee, David Fagan, said, “I feel disappointed. I think he clearly understood the issue well in 2004 when he made the commitment. This issue is polarizing the state and I think will have a negative impact economically on this state.”

The International Union of Operating Engineers support Lunchpail Republican group. They also agree that the governor should not have changed his mind regarding the issue, believing that it should not be a right to work state.

Brian Bosma, the House Speaker, is allowing the House to vote on Tuesday in order to put the right to work proposal to a referendum during November.

Democrats do not have enough vote to derail the proposal, although they admittedly want to block the legislation.

The legislation will band unions and companies from allowing contracts to mandate all employees to join the union.
