MI judge to hear unfair labor practices complaint against teachers union

By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential

The Michigan Education Association says its members can only leave the union during a limited window in August, and on Wednesday it is scheduled to sit in front of an administrative law judge to explain why.

A group of Saginaw Public Schools teachers challenged the MEA’s policies and filed unfair labor practice complaints with the Michigan Employment Relations Commission to get out of the union.

At the hearing before Administrative Law Judge Julia C. Stern, the MEA is expected to defend its practices surrounding how it deals with members who want to leave the union as part of the state’s right-to-work law. MEA officials have insisted that information about leaving was available to all members.
