Labor groups and their supporters won a major victory today at the statehouse.
Several dozen Republicans joined House Democrats to sustain Governor Lynch’s veto of the Right-to-Work .
Going into the vote nobody was willing to predict how it would turn out.
It was too close to call.
Supporters of the bill that would ban unions from collecting negotiating fees from non-union employees needed a 2/3rds majority to overturn Lynch’s veto.
So after the 30 seconds lawmakers got to cast their votes, a hush came over the 379 state Representatives.
