Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio was on Fox Business with Neil Cavuto Wednesday night discussing the possibilities of unions mounting a recall effort against Gov. Rick Snyder due to Michigan becoming the 24th right-to-work state.

Vernuccio said he did not think such an effort would succeed, and said it could give union members more incentive to resign their membership under Michigan’s right-to-work law if they thought their dues were being misspent on such politics.

Vernuccio pointed to the fact that although Michigan voted for President Obama in November, the union-backed Proposal 2 lost by some 600,000 more votes than were cast for the president, meaning that Democratic voters are not willing to “rubber stamp” union issues.
