Since Right to Work passed in Wisconsin, union membership and dues have evaporated.
If Michigan follows, the unions are going to be reduced to the size of a barking chihuahua. Imagine the impact on the unions in Michigan’s car factories. Wheee.
Careful what you wish for...
Spoke with my "auto gnome" today, yes I am here in MI. If I understood him correct, the Contract denotes the UAW as the sole rep of plant workers via Union Representation in the Auto Contracts. This State Law now conflicts with "Contract Law". Which has president? Does it go to the State Supreme Court? An amicable gentleman's renegotiation occurring between the Big -3 and the Unions to fix the Contract? Or does it fast track to the "Supreme's" and John Roberts BOHICA us again?
Wisconsin did not pass right to work. They restricted collective bargaining to wage issues and discontinued the practice of have dues deductions done by public employees.
