Four Workers Move to Defend Michigan’s Right to Work Law against Union Boss Federal Lawsuit

New state law frees workers from paying compulsory union dues as a condition of employment

Detroit, MI (April 16, 2013) – Four Michigan workers have moved to intervene in a Big Labor-backed federal lawsuit challenging Michigan's newly-enacted Right to Work law, which frees workers from paying union dues just to get or keep their jobs.

With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, workers Terry Bowman and Brian Pannebecker, who work for Ford Motor Company in Ypsilanti and Sterling; Aaric Aaron Lewis, who works for AT&T in Kalamazoo; and Robert G. Harris, who works for Aunt Millie's Bakery in Jackson, filed the motion to intervene today in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. The four workers are forced to financially support a union in order to keep their jobs.
