Right to Work Day

Right to Work takes effect in Michigan today.  Workers will still have to wait until their union contracts expire to finally be free of exploitation by the union bosses.  A number of jurisdictions extended contracts before today to keep taking workers' money for years longer.

Western Michigan University passed a "normal" extension of the part-timers contract, but avoided a special "Union Security Agreement" with AAUP.

Unions haven't offered much of a response so far.  They filed several lawsuits, none of which seem likely to be successful.  They haven't launched any recalls, and don't appear likely to do so.  They presumably will launch a ballot drive at some point, but haven't made a move to do so yet.

The battle isn't over yet, but freedom won a big victory today.
