Yesterday, the Michigan Supreme Court decided it would hear the State Employees Association and United Auto Workers Appeal of the August 2013 decision of the Michigan Court of Appeals . The Court of Appeals decision held, contrary to the Union litigant’s arguments, that Michigan’s Right to Work Law applies to the State’s 35,000 workers. The Union litigants had argued that Michigan’s Constitution reserved the right to set employment conditions for state employees to the State Civil Service Commission. The Court of Appeals rejected that argument in a 2–1 decision.Check back here for further developments on this and on the pending Michigan Right to Work issues.
