Michigan union bullies workers who opted out under right-to-work

By Tom Gantert | Michigan Capitol Confidential

Another union is trying to intimidate some former members by listing their names in a newsletter after they exercised their rights and left the union.

The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 324 referred to 19 workers from across the state who opted out of the union after the state’s right-to-work law went into effect as “freeloaders.” The union printed the names in its winter 2013 newsletter under the headline, “RTW FREELOADERS LIST.” The union released a smaller list in its summer 2013 newsletter, which had the names of two members who opted out.
