Michigan Senate joins House in repeal of ‘right to work’ law

Michigan is fed up with its “right to work” law and moving swiftly to repeal it.

NBC affiliate WOOD 8 reports:

“Michigan Democrats have successfully passed a repeal of the state’s “right-to-work” law.

The Senate passed the measure Tuesday. The House passed it last week.

The law, enacted a decade ago, prohibited requirements that workers pay union dues or fees as a condition of their employment. Supporters of the policy argued that it made Michigan more competitive for economic development, and allowed employees to decide for themselves whether to join a union.”
