    Default Unions struggle to explain defeat of Michigan anti-right to work ballot proposal

    The proposal would have prevented the Michigan from ever becoming right to work state or otherwise enacting any law construed as limiting collective bargaining rights.

    This was part of an ambitious effort by organized labor to head off any future challenges to union power at the state level, such as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s rollback of public sector union rights. Michigan was to be the test case. Other states would follow if it was successful.

    Maybe they can get a judge to overrule it, say it's unconstitutional like they do to every proposition that doesn't go the liberal way here in Ca.

    I think it's because there's been decades of anti-union claptrap that John Q. Public has bought into - particularly our conservative friends. Even good union men and women believe it. So non-union folks have probably lapped it up.

    There's no written rule that says you have to be a democrat to be a union member, there's alot of non-union dems out there too, John Q. Public is a big mix of different ideals.
