Legislation Announced to Make Michigan the 24th Right-to-Work State in the Nation (Mackinac Center)

December 6, 2012 – The Michigan Legislature today took the first step toward making Michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the nation, announcing what Gov. Rick Snyder termed the “Workplace Fairness and Equity Act.” “This is a historic day for both Michigan and the nation,” said Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio. “The birthplace of the UAW and the state with the 5th highest percentage of union members in the country has taken the first step toward enacting worker freedom.” Extending right-to-work protections to employees in both the private and public sectors means that unions will no longer be able to get a person fired for refusing to financially support them.
