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.
