Bridge Magazine Details MEA's Decline

Center, labor policy expert cited in package of in-depth stories

The Mackinac Center and Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio are cited in a package of stories by Bridge Magazine about the financial difficulties of the Michigan Education Association and the dissatisfaction the union’s members have expressed recently.

Bridge highlights the teachers in Roscommon, who voted to drop the MEA, and noted that the union is “in the midst of an epic political losing streak.”

Vernuccio told the magazine about how the Center gets “several requests a week” about what occurred in Roscommon from teachers asking for help.

“A lot of the concern is the same as at Roscommon,” Vernuccio said. “Members feel the MEA is spending too much money on special interests and not representing their interests.”
