    In 2011, the new makeup of the Michigan legislature brought forth a new reality, and hope for Michigan workers and employers.

    The possibility of Right-To-Work legislation in a state considered so incredibly 'hands off' was too unbelievable, that even the national right to work folks scoffed at those of us conferencing in Lansing were preparing it.  They were planning some help for Indiana and possibly Ohio, but Michigan? No way.

    We persisted, and believing the governor's pre-election pledge that if it came before him, he would sign it, daily efforts were made to advance this important freedom, and relief from organized labor's non-accountability. It was focused, and had too many parts that would eventually lead to its successful passage, to give credit to one entity, or idea or effort. All hands were on deck, and the trick was getting it in front of the governor to sign.

    Which he did.  And we thank him for honoring his promise.

    While the fight to KEEP it will go on for a couple of years, we should celebrate this point in time with vigor.

    Happy Workers Freedom day!

    LANSING, MI, March 28, 2013 - Michigan Freedom Fund President Greg McNeilly issued the following statement today as Michigan formally became the 24th Freedom-to-Work state in the nation.

    "This is a monumental day for working families in Michigan.  Joining a union--or not--should be an individual worker's choice and now here in Michigan, making that choice will not cost one worker his or her job.  Michigan took a huge step forward today in the battle to protect residents' civil rights and to empower working families. "

    Michigan Freedom Fund is a statewide advocacy organization promoting freedom, including the Freedom to Work, with a specific focus on empowering workers and protecting collective bargaining.  For more information, please visit www.MoreMIJobs.com.
