Center Attorney Discusses Complaints Against MEA

'They're a $100 million-a-year bully'

Patrick Wright, director of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, was a guest this morning on “Current State” on WKAR public radio discussing the unfair labor practice complaints the MCLF has filed on behalf of teachers against the Michigan Education Association.

Wright explained that the union has threatened to ruin the credit ratings of teachers who want to exercise their worker freedom rights and opt out of the union immediately. The MEA further insists that the teachers must continue paying dues and can only resign during the month of August.

Wright said the MEA has “chosen power over principle, money over their membership and cash over colleagues.”
