The issue of right-to-work has become the primary issue getting attention in Lansing.
With Republicans holding the governor’s office and control of both houses of the legislature, it was expected that some form of right-to -ork bill would be proposed, even during the lame duck 2012 session.
In simple terms, right-to-work bills around the country have prohibited the common practice of requiring the establishment of union shops, where all workers are required to be members of unions if a business has a union agreement. Non-union workers are usually still required to pay dues to a union of there is a collective bargaining agreement. Right-to-work would ban such practices.
