Federal Court Upholds Michigan's Right to Work Law

Workers defend free choice for workers against spurious union boss legal challenge

Detroit, MI (March 31, 2014) – Today, a federal court upheld the major provisions of Michigan's recently-enacted Right to Work law. Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation, issued the following statement in response to the court's ruling:

"After suffering a major legislative defeat and being rejected by voters when they attempted to entrench forced unionism in the state constitution, Michigan union bosses are seeking to strike down Michigan's Right to Work law in the courts. In this case, AFL-CIO union lawyers argued that federal law preempts the enforcement of state Right to Work laws in several respects.

"Fortunately, the court dismissed the union lawyers' challenges to the core provisions of Michigan's Right to Work law and Michigan workers will continue to have the Right to Work without having to pay dues to an unwanted union."
