Labor Union Prepares To Sue Members Who Opt Out

Oh this is rich. Teachers in Michigan are about to find out where their union’s priorities are. New right-to-work laws, which go into effect onSolidarity-Fist March 27, 2013, allow workers to opt out of union membership unless they have an existing contract with their employer.   And if they decide to opt out of union membership and keep their hard-earned money, the union is threatening to sue them.

The law is what it is. Michigan is now a right-to-work state. All it means is that unions will now have to offer their members a reason, other than losing their job or being sued, to want to belong and pay dues.

It also shows that union intimidation is not just limited to employers.
