    Michigan: A Right to Work State

    "If they can pass a bill to make MI a Right to Work State, I am sure that paves the way for GM to make a play to do away with UAW. That I would like to see."

    The bill has passed throught the Michigan House and Senate - it will be on the govenor's desk by Tuesday for signature. The UAW, and other unions, are going to be scrambling to recover from this setback. It all becomes "real" when represented workers invoke their right to NOT pay union dues, for many good reasons, and essentially walk away from the stranglehold that many have had to struggle with.

    All in good time. I'm waiting for "numbers" of how fast workers stop paying dues. That sure the heck won't come from the Unions themselves! I also wonder if unions, at least for awhile, will "claim" those that have stopped paying dues in their ranks as "represented". For example, a union shop where 150 workers are currently represented, suddenly loses 30-40 paying dues. Will the union, because there are still 150 workers in that shop under a contract that was negotiated, still claim all 150 as "theirs"?!?!?!?

    Roll up all the local and their numbers into a region to show that they still represent essentially an unchanged level of members?

    I think the numbers will only come from within the ranks of those who have left. Any ideas on how these numbers will be made visible? I want to see the strength of numbers slowly (but quickly at first) but surely get skinny! And I want those numbers made very visible to the public!
