Michigan Teachers Union To Sue Its Own Members For Dues Money

January 24, 2013

Because nothing says we’re looking out for you like give us your money or else.

As if the people of Michigan haven’t been squeezed enough already.

The Washington Free Beacon reports…

The president of Michigan’s largest union is instructing officials to prepare to sue its own members, according to a leaked memo issued after the state adopted right-to-work laws in December.

Steven Cook, president of the Michigan Education Association, circulated an email to local unions officials and staff instructing them to monitor revenue streams in light of the right-to-work laws, which are set to go into effect on March 27, 2013. The law allows workers to opt out of union membership unless they have an existing contract with their employer.

“We will use any legal means at our disposal to collect the dues owed under signed membership forms from any members who withhold dues prior to terminating their membership in August,” Cook wrote.

Say, didn’t the teachers unions overwhelmingly support Obama in 2008 and 2012?

Funny that.
