This evening, February 2, 2016, I’m proud to report that the Delegates of the Huron Valley Central Labor Council unanimously endorsed the following resolution:
We are outraged by the proposed Michigan Republican legislation (S.B. 713 and 714) attacking teachers and their unions. Once again Michigan Republican Legislators and Governor Snyder are legislatively attacking citizens’ right to free speech, freedom of association, and collective action.
We pledge our full support to the MEA and AFT-Michigan in defending their members and their unions in whatever ways the MEA and AFT-Michigan ask us, up to and including nonviolent civil disobedience. We believe now is the time we must all stand together to stop these fascist attacks on the democratic rights of Michigan citizens.
