Public employees win one

Finally a victory for the hard working men and women of Michigan and possibly other states.

Members of the Michigan Education Association should be able to resign from the union at any time, and not just during the month of August, an administrative law judge ruled this week.

The ruling could be a blow to the union, which represents teachers and many other school employees. For decades the union’s bylaws have stipulated that members could opt out only between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31. Union officials said in a statement this morning they would appeal.

It's funny, if they would appeal to the members they wouldn't have to worry about them opting out.

Exactly. Your involvement with a union should be voluntary. That's natural law.

What's natural to me, is having a choice what party a part of my dues are being given to.
