Michigan Teachers could be getting Right to Work freedom, but what about the rest of MI workers?

According to Michigan’s Capitol Confidential, teachers may soon have the right to choose whether they want to pay union dues rather than being forced to pay ever increasing dues without a choice.  Others are asking, When will the rest of Michigan’s workforce have the same choice?

From Jack Spencer:

Chances look good for passage and enactment of legislation to provide right-to-work status for Michigan public school teachers. Under the measure, called the “Freedom to Teach Act,” teachers would no longer be required to join or support a union as a condition of employment.

At the end of last week, Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, announced the measure on Michigan public television’s “Off the Record,” and asserted that he strongly supported it. The legislation is expected to be formally introduced Tuesday or Wednesday.
