The Mackinac Center Legal Foundation has intervened on behalf of a graduate student research assistant at the University of Michigan who objects to an illegal attempt to be unionized, according to the Detroit Free Press, the Hawaii Reporter, Washington Examiner, Livingston Daily Press & Argus, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Michigan Daily, the Ashville (N.C.) Citizen-Times and AnnArbor.com.

The MCLF filed a motion with the Michigan Employment Relations Commission on behalf of Melinda Day, a graduate student at U of M. The commission has already once rejected unionization of the students, stating they do not qualify as public employees.

Wright and Day were also guests on "The Frank Beckmann Show" on WJR AM-760, where they discussed the case.
