A Detroit News editorial today agrees with the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation that graduate student research assistants at the University of Michigan should not be unionized.

The MCLF filed a motion on behalf of Melinda Day, one of those students, who is objecting to the illegal unionization attempts. The Michigan Employment Relations Commission in 1981, after 19 days of hearings and thousands of pages of exhibits, ruled that this exact same group of students were just that — students — and not public employees, therefore making it illegal to unionize them.
