Michigan: Teachers Unions Shut Down School Districts to Protest Right-To-Work Law
WDIV News in Detroit reports that so many unionized teachers have called in sick Tuesday that the Taylor and Warren Consolidated Schools districts will be forced to shut down the schools. The teachers are heading off to Lansing for rallies to protest the state’s new right-to-work laws.

“Lansing authorities are bracing for an onslaught of protesters Tuesday,” reports WDIV. “They have increased police presence and plan road closings and parking restrictions around the Capitol.”

Besides the army of teachers that care more about union solidarity than educating children, Big Labor has President Obama in its pocket too. The President delivered an absurd tirade against the right-to-work law:

Michigan State Police prepare for Tuesday's right-to-work protest at Capitol

Michigan police hope for peaceful right-to-work protests Tuesday at state Capitol


The stage is set at the Capitol in Lansing and Michigan State Police are ready to take action as they wait for Tuesday's planned protests against right-to-work.

"We have increased state police presence due to lessons learned in Ohio and Wisconsin," said MSP officer Gene Adamczyk. "This is a very emotional topic."

On Monday, it was all quiet at the Capitol. Registered nurses with the Michigan Nursing Association stood silent on the Capitol steps as they protested right-to-work legislation.

Re: Michigan: Teachers Unions Shut Down School Districts to Protest Right-To-Work Law
whats better a right to work law or a right to keep outsiders from working law?


they should fire each and every one of them for wasting the taxpayers money and holding their ever increasingly indoctrinated brats hostage

It's gotten to the point that there is no functioning difference between the unions and the muzzies, if they dont get their way, they destroy everything and demand ransom and tribute and dont let you seek out any alternatives, and if you persist, you end up in a shallow unmarked grave somewhere

The ‘sick’ teachers are heading to Lansing to protest a bill set to be signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Rick Snyder that would make Michigan a right to work state. If the legislation does become law, employees would no longer be forced to join a union if they did not want to.

“For us to succeed, we have to remain competitive. That’s why I believe we should make Michigan a freedom-to-work state,” Snyder said at a press conference last Thursday.

right to work

vs

right to keep others from working when they refuse to work.

Oh yeah, theyll go back to work for ten TRILLION DOLLARS to make up for their looted and bankrupted pension funds which now will need a bailout from the public already looted once by paying more than they earn themselves

Obama joins Michigan Democrats in push to stall right-to-work bills

Obama added his voice to the cause during an appearance at a plant in Redford, mocking the “right to work” label supporters have used to describe the efforts to prohibit requiring non-union employees to financially support unions at the workplace.

“These so-called right-to-work laws, they don’t have anything to do with economics, they have everything to do with politics,” Obama said. “What they’re really talking about is giving you the right to work for less money.”

Re: Michigan: Teachers Unions Shut Down School Districts to Protest Right-To-Work Law
Here is the start of this all.

September 15, 2011


Snip; The Republican-led Michigan House on Thursday narrowly approved a proposal that would prohibit public schools from automatically deducting union dues from the paychecks of teachers and other employees.

Snip; The state's largest teachers union, the Michigan Education Association, is fighting against the legislation. The MEA has clashed with Republicans over multiple bills this year, including measures to limit the significance of teacher tenure and require many public employees to pay more of their health care costs.
Another potential fight is pending over a separate, developing plan that could make Michigan a so-called "right to teach" state. The measure likely will be drafted to prohibit requiring teachers to join or financially support a union as a condition of their employment.



[link to www.mlive.com]

Turn the way back machine to Febuary 3, 2002


Snip from 2002; In response to an anticipated budget deficit of over $10 million, the Michigan Education Association’s (MEA) officers are proposing to raise membership dues the maximum amount allowed by the union’s bylaws. The average full-time public school teacher will see his or her annual MEA membership dues increased by $111.90, from $457.40 to $569.30 annually, a 25 percent increase. These dues amounts are in addition to National Education Association (NEA) and local association dues.

The deficit is believed to have arisen due to an increase in the cost of benefits for MEA employees, and lagging membership dues income because the reluctance of many school districts to hire new teachers or support staff. MEA membership fell at least 225 members short of projections and income was $628,559 short of expectations, according to an MEA document.




2008

Snip; The MEA reported spending $31.5 million last year on employee compensation, up 8 percent from the previous year. The average MEA employee earned about $81,000, although the actual figures ranged from a high of approximately $204,000, the gross salary recorded for Arthur Przybylowicz, general counsel, to $8,500 paid to a bargainer. Executive director Luigi Battaglieri’s gross salary was reported as $195,000. The average Uniserv director salary was about $100,000.

In many states it is illegal for teachers to strike. They would be fired the moment they did. Michigan teachers best check their contracts.

The Unions should shut the whole damn State down not just a few groups of teachers here and there. Close the auto plants/Schools/State Government Unions all of them and then start bussing them all into Lansing. This Governor the Rickster/Repo Legislature and the KOCH Bros should be shown the door after this bullshit. This supposed Law was never even taken to Legislative Comm for recommendation before being sent to the floor for a vote!

unionistas are simply wringing out the remaining cash in the punlics pockets.
There is no hope for michigan or the country, there is no employment possibility for half of the nonskilled workers, and they're working to destroy the farming culture, so this is a effort to keep enough control over their employers (the public at large)and victims to force them to refill their bankrupt penison coffers which were used not to create emergency funds, but to give to dems and insiders as bonuses over time.
When the times comes when the gloves come off and they come to confiscate, that will be with unionistas at the fore with their hands out demanding perpetual and endless financial support from those they exclud from their ranks in the first place
