Indiana Democrats ending boycott, won’t promise labor vote

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana House Democrats are ending a three-day boycott of the Legislature over a contentious labor bill but are not promising to stay long enough to allow a final vote on the divisive measure.

House Democratic Leader Patrick Bauer told The Associated Press today that Democrats are returning “just for today.”

Indiana Republicans are pushing a right-to-work bill that would ban contracts that require employees to pay mandatory fees for union representation.

House Democrats last week denied Republicans the 67 members on the floor they need to conduct any business. But as the week wore on Democrats signaled their holdout was unlikely to last in the face of fines Republicans imposed after a five-week walkout last year over the same issue.
