It would be amazing to see these bills pass!

As state legislators returned to work this week, much of the buzz in Lansing has centered on attempts to get funding for road and bridge repairs and a bizarre sex scandal. However, one local Democrat is hoping to have an issue rushed through the House prior to his election revisited.

John Chirkun, a Roseville Democrat, announced Wednesday he is introducing a pair of bills that would overturn the right-to-work legislation that eliminated compulsory dues for unions in many workplaces.

In a release, he said the pair of House bills “would return Michigan to a ‘free bargaining’ state, where unions are better positioned to negotiate for pay, benefits and working conditions on behalf of their members.”
