They protect the slacker.. When my father was laid off for over a year the union that you so love did absolutely nothing for him except demand their union dues.

Whatever Sue...Those who choose NOT to join the union who BARGAINS the contract for benefits, wages, pensions, vacations, 401K etc GLADLY ACCEPT what that union gets for you. Right?My suggestion for those who choose not to be members would be for you NOT to take what that union gets in a contract...Get it yourself...It's wrong for anyone to accept something like that when you want nothing to do with the organization who gets those things for you...Morally wrong...

And...I somewhat agree with you Sue about the Prop 2 thing...Bad political move in many ways...but this whole thing that Snyder and thee lame ducks pulled and rammed through in DAYS was just ridiculous...FOUR Republicans agreed that it was a rotten move...I will personally be headhunting every person who voted for this bill and do everything I CAN to see that they are not elected again...I've done this before...and I'll do it again...by education...

To the people who are against Unions. Shame on you. People died setting the standards of wages, benefits and the right to collective bargaining in many of your jobs today. Without collective bargaining, we would be at the mercy of greedy company management.

Former President of Genesee Teacher's Union and wife Nancy served on first all women's college negotiation team---we support unions and all who care about the health, safety and future of Michigan workers need to fight the efforts of Snyder and his wealthy backroom members of the Scrooge family who want more work for less pay----this is an insult to UAW workers who rolled up their sleaves and pushed GM back on top by a whole bunch of hard work and extra effort. Snyder is coward and a big money puppet.s.

My real concern is "why are there only 14, 000 plus signed petitions? How many union members are there in Michigan? These actions by this knucklehead governor is as serious as a heart attack.... I'm real hopeful the leadership of all those unions in Michigan are doing their part pushing down and out with an agenda to overcome by education/communication of its rank/file.......

I have no problem with a right to work. If you don't want to pay union dues, then don't apply where there are unions! If you do come to work where there are unions, you should not be allowed to share in everything our union bargained for with the company. If you don't pay for the backing of our union then you should have to bargain on your own. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

That's right, Gary. I'm not sure why people want to work in a union shop and not pay dues when they already know benefits and wages will be better. Snyder thinks everyone has stupid written across their heads, I guess. As I said before, people should not receive anything that was collectively bargained for without paying the dues. No pay, No services rendered.

If you want to benefit from the union (wages, protection from unfair labor practices) you should be willing to share in the cost.
