Center Legal Experts Cited on MEA Court Loss

Schools no longer spending tax dollars to collect union dues

Two Mackinac Center experts were cited in The Oakland Press and The Macomb Daily in stories about a recent court ruling that prohibits school districts from spending public money to collect dues for private unions.

“As a result of this decision, a school district does not have to collect dues or fees for any collective bargaining agreement that was entered into, extended or renewed after March 20, 2012,” said Patrick J. Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation.

“This decision rightfully recognizes that government should not be a collection agency for a private organization,” added Labor Policy Director F. Vincent Vernuccio.
