(Re: Unions) I don't understand all the law-stuff--but this makes me happy:

Via Daily Kos:

Last Thursday, March 31, 2011, a federal judge overturned laws enacted last year by the Illinois State Legislature which benefit the trade show and convention industries.

The suit was filed by the Teamsters Local 727 against The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority.

The Illinois judge in this case, Ronald Guzman, held that:

a) collective bargaining rights cannot be overturned by governmental edict;

b) the National Labor Relations Act preempts the Legislature from dictating terms for unions.

This seems to mean that far-flung laws in WI, OH, IN, etc., are good for nothing because national law takes precedent. Which sounds awesome.
