The only real problem with Michigan’s new right-to-work law is that it stops short of extending right-to-work protections to public safety employees, who are the workers who need this protection the most.(full story at unionwatch.org)
As noted in the text of House Bill 4003, Section 10, subsection 4, part (a), “Subsection (3) does not apply to any of the following: (i) A public police or fire department employee or any person who seeks to become employed as a public police or fire department employee…”
The consequences of short-sighted Republican pandering to unions representing police, firefighters and prison guards, who typically vote for conservatives, can be seen in California, where cities and counties are now virtually under police and firefighter union rule, and where only the California Teachers Association has more sway in Sacramento than the prison guards union. Wisconsin’s much needed public sector union reforms excluded public safety. Now Michigan has made the same mistake.
