Michigan Union Power Grab

Michigan child care workers, upset about being forced to pay union dues, tried to bring a class action suit but were denied class action status. 

Policy Analyst Ivan Osorio comments.Unfortunately, we can expect to see more efforts to corral government contractors into unions, as unionization shifts away from the private sector into government employment. Two years ago this month, the number of union members who work for government entities surpassed that of union members for private businesses. With good reason, a lot of labor leaders see the public sector as key to their unions’ future."
