Mackinac Center Sues UAW for Fake Union Scheme
The United Auto Workers demanded that its employees fund a fake union and threatened to fire workers who didn’t pay into it. Jim Shake was an actuary at UAW headquarters in Detroit for a decade. Beginning in 2014, the union forced him to contribute to “Local X” – supposedly a local UAW union, for which Shake and Mackinac Center Legal Foundation attorneys could find no record.
CASE UPDATE: Due to a lack of progress in the case, the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation has filed a request for superintending control to the Court of Appeals.
