Tens of thousands of small business owners who were illegally forced into a union have been denied their ability to recoup millions of dollars in union dues that were taken from them during the scheme.

Patrick J. Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, told WJRT-TV12 in Flint that a federal judge in Grand Rapids ruled he would not grant class action status, “so the union offered the five class members their couple hundred dollars back and kept the rest for itself.”

Wright led the legal battle to stop the forced unionization of home-based day care providers, which came to an end last March.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus also covered the most recent court decision.
