Washtenaw County Republicans
Committee calls on Gov. Rick Snyder
to mandate Michigan to become a
"Right to Work" state.

Leaders of the Washtenaw County Republican Committee are calling on Gov. Rick Snyder and state lawmakers to support enactment of a state "right to work" law protecting employees from being forced to join or pay dues to a labor union as a condition of employment.
The local party's executive committee Thursday night voted to adopt a resolution proposed by the Willow Run Tea Party Caucus saying a right to work law will "guarantee individual freedom of choice and help attract and create new jobs in Michigan."
The resolution specifically calls on Snyder, Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville and local state Reps. Mark Ouimet and Rick Olson — all Republicans — to push the issue.
Judy McCoy, a member of the GOP committee, said in a statement that right to work legislation "is a civil rights law that will protect employees from job discrimination on the basis of union membership or financial support."
"No employee should be discriminated against and fired for choosing to join or support a union, or for choosing not to," she said.
