2016 House Bill 5398

Authorize right-to-work exception

Introduced in the House

Feb. 23, 2016

Introduced by Rep. Robert Kosowski (D-16)

To permit an employer to make paying union dues a condition of employment if a majority of employees in a workplace vote to impose this, subject to various conditions specified in the bill. The bill essentially provides a way for unions to side-step Michigan’s 2012 right-to-work law, which prohibits requiring workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment.

Referred to the Committee on Commerce and Trade
