Pennsylvania Labor Attorney Irwin Aronson Addresses National Labor Law News and Trends on The Rick Smith Show

March 2, 2012

On Feb. 29, 2012, Willig, Williams & Davidson Partner and Pennsylvania labor lawyer Irwin W. Aronson was interviewed on The Rick Smith Show, “Where Working People Come to Talk.” In the radio segment, Aronson discussed the outrageous, and potentially unconstitutional, action of the Corbett administration in directing the Pennsylvania Capitol Police to bar a small group of disabled Pennsylvanians from access to the State Capitol Building when they tried to contact their elected representatives to protest human service funding slashes in the proposed Corbett budget. An administration spokesman claimed the police action was aimed at stopping these 15 to 20 disabled individuals from "taking over" the State Capitol. The Pennsylvania labor law lawyer described the constitutional prohibitions on prior restraint of free speech guaranteed by the U.S. and Pennsylvania State Constitutions.

Later in the segment, show host Rick Smith and Aronson discussed issues surrounding a publicly funded charter school in Tampa, Fla. that is requiring students to attend events sponsored by the Church of Scientology.

In the final portion of the show, Aronson focused on a piece of legislation quickly moving through the Georgia legislature that expands on the state's right to work (for less) law that would criminalize picketing associated with labor management disputes – subjecting participants to fines and jail.
