A federal district judge in Grand Rapids has ruled that a class action lawsuit brought by the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation aimed at ending the forced unionization of small-business owners can proceed, according to The Grand Rapids Press.
The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of home-based day care operators who were shanghaied into a union.
"It's an underhanded scheme," Patrick Wright, director of the MCLF, told The Press.
Wright was also a guest on WGN Radio in Chicago today, where he discussed the issue with host Mike McConnell.
WJRT-TV12 in Flint also covered the story and interviewed Michelle Berry, one of the plaintiffs in the MCLF case.
