2011 Senate Bill 729: Establish “right to work” for MEA union school employees
  1. Introduced by Sen. Arlan Meekhof (R) on October 6, 2011, to prohibit school districts from making an agreement with a union that has more that 50,000 members (meaning the Michigan Education Association) which requires employees to pay dues or fees to the union as a condition of employment. In other words, to establish a “right to work” law for most Michigan public school employees. Note: Detroit school employees belong to a different union, so this so-called “right to teach” bill would not apply to them.
    • Referred to the Senate Reforms, Restructuring and Reinventing Committee on October 6, 2011.

Was this bill really necessary? I thought that this is an intrinsic right for these people, they are after all working adults. What else should we expect in the work field of our nation?

 You've got it right. The MEA is only about politics. It doesn't have anything to do with education.
