ACLU Files Suit Over Right to Work

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against the State over Michigan's Right to Work law. According to the ACLU "the lockout at the Capitol (that took place during the voting process) merely added to the legislators’ attempts to swiftly pass these bills with little public input. The bills were abruptly introduced during the last days of the lame-duck legislative session, already a period of diminished public accountability. Rather than allowing the bills to go through the standard committee hearing process where the public would have been invited to comment, the right-to-work language was introduced for the first time on the House and Senate floors on the same day the bills were passed.

As further evidence of the desire to prevent the public from holding their government accountable, the lawsuit also notes the appropriations provision that was added to make the legislation referendum-proof under the Michigan Constitution". Craig speaks with ACLU Executive Director, Kary Moss, about the suit.
