'Right-to-work' bill could be introduced today -- come to the Capitol to help stop it!

MEA members, retirees and staff are being urged to come to Lansing tomorrow, Dec. 6, to join other citizen lobbyists in urging lawmakers to vote NO on so-called "right-to-work" legislation, which sources say could be introduced as early as 4 p.m. today.

Regardless of whether you can make it tomorrow, please call your lawmakers today and urge them to vote NO on right-to-work. Click here to find contact information for your legislators and call them immediately!

Citizen lobbyists will rendezvous tomorrow morning at UAW Local 724, 450 Clare St. in Lansing, at 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., as well as at the Michigan AFL-CIO, 419 S. Washington Square in Lansing, at 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Upon arrival at either location, volunteers will receive training and materials before proceeding to the Capitol building. Please RSVP to come to Lansing tomorrow by clicking here.

The extremist lawmakers and corporate special interests backing right-to-work are hoping that you are too distracted by the holiday season to notice that they’re trying to destroy collective bargaining rights for the middle class. Prove them wrong by calling your lawmaker and coming to Lansing tomorrow.

If you can’t make it to Lansing tomorrow but still want to make your voice heard, please click here to use the AFL-CIO’s online tool and send an email to your legislator opposing right-to-work. Also, please sign the petition against right-to-work.
