Paul Kersey, director of labor policy, pointed out in a Detroit News editorial regarding the labor strife between the Central Michigan University Faculty Association and the administration that the Michigan Public Employment Relations Act does not require that “management agree to union demands.”

Kersey also explained that under PERA, collective bargaining by government employee unions is a privilege, not a right, and one that the Legislature could revoke. Kersey addressed the CMU situation in this blog post, and has written about PERA and penalties for illegal strikes here, here and here.

The Mt. Pleasant Morning Sun also ran this blog post that Kersey wrote about the CMU issue.
