ACLU, Unions File Lawsuit to Invalidate Michigan’s Right-to-Work Law | ACLU of Michigan | Because Freedom Can’t Protect Itself

31 Jan

The lawsuit stems from the contentious events of Dec. 6, 2012, when the Michigan Capitol doors were locked to prevent additional people from coming to witness or engage their legislators while the controversial right-to-work bills were being debated on the House and Senate floors. The public, including some journalists, were locked out for more than four hours while legislators debated and voted on the bills. While individuals already in the Capitol could stay, people waiting outside were not allowed to enter. In addition, the galleries overlooking the House floor were intentionally packed with legislative staffers so that the public would not be allowed in.

I was one of the people locked out that day.  “A pox on all your houses”
