Know Your Rights: Michigan's Right to Work Law 

In December 2012, Michigan became the nation's 24th state to pass Right to Work protections for its workers. On March 28, 2013, Michigan's private sector and public sector Right to Work laws went into effect and Michigan workers finally have Right to Work protections.

Recent media reports suggest that union bosses are attempting to skirt Michigan's Right to Work law any way they can.  The Wall Street Journal even reported that a Michigan teacher union boss sent out a memo stating union officials should consider suing union members who exercise their Right to Work and refrain from union membership and dues payments.

Fortunately, the National Right to Work Foundation has of a special task force committed to defending Michigan workers who seek to exercise their rights under the state's newly-enacted Right to Work law.  If you, or someone you know, needs legal assistance, please contact the National Right to Work Foundation by calling toll free 1-800-336-3600 or by clicking here.
