7,000 Michigan Teachers Not Paying Dues
Doug Pratt, Director of Member and Political Engagement for the Michigan Education Association (MEA), admitted on Michigan Public Radio that 7,000 Michigan teacher members had not yet paid their dues, but envisions Michigan’s Right to Work Law as strengthening the MEA in the next 5 years. Pratt blamed these numbers on the discontinuation of forced dues deduction, claiming teacher union officials were now compelled to actually request teachers pay their dues. Cynthia Canty has the story on Stateside, Michigan Public Radio.
But Michigan’s two teacher unions have certainly felt the impact of right to work.
