GOP fails to block MI Collective Bargaining vote!


Michigan Court of Appeals Approves Collective Bargaining for Ballot
Posted on August 27, 2012, by tb, in News, press release, tagged
(Detroit, MI) – The Michigan Court of Appeals today affirmed the right of working families to vote on a proposal to preserve collective bargaining.

The initiative now will be placed on the Nov. 6 ballot.

“It’s a major victory for working people,” said Karen Kuciel, a Warren Consolidated Schools teacher. “Collective bargaining will be on the ballot for a vote. Now we must overcome the corporate special interests at the ballot box to ensure we have a voice for fair wages, benefits and safe working conditions for all of us.”

Corporate special interests pushed Lansing politicians to pressure the court leading up to today’s decision. But there was no legal reason to deny people the opportunity to vote on the proposal.

This is awesome. Workers' rights have been under relentless attack in this state and the GOP is shitting themselves at the idea we're going to tell them STOP. The proposal will put the right to collective bargaining in the state constitution. I am pumped for November.
