2011 House Bill 4466: Fine union for illegal teacher strike
Introduced by Rep. Paul Scott (R) on March 22, 2011
To authorize fines of $5,000 per day against the Michigan Education Association or other school employee union for each day of an illegal strike. The bill would also allow consolidating the hearings at which fines may be assessed against illegally striking teachers; under current law the need for hundreds of individual hearings means that teacher fines are rarely assessed. The sponsor says the intention is $5,000 per teacher per day.   Official Text and Analysis.
