Know the facts. So-called Right-to-Work doesn't create jobs. It turns good union jobs into bad jobs.
- Workers in so-called right-to-work states make about $5,300 less per year.
- In so-called right-to-work states, fewer are free to join a union, slashing retirement contributions and crippling pensions.
- You might call it “right-to-work to death” - the workplace death rate is 36 percent higher in so-called right-to-work states.
Right to Work: Wrong for Michigan
Extremists in Michigan are trying to bust your Union! Despite its misleading title, so-called “Right to Work” laws do not guarantee anyone gainful employment and does not protect workers. In fact, “Right to Work” does the opposite! Workers in “Right to Work” states earn significantly less than workers in free bargaining states, workers have less health care in “Right to Work” states, and “Right to Work” states have a nearly 55% higher fatality rate on job sites. “Right to Work” is wrong for Michigan and wrong for Union Laborers and their families.

Take Three Minutes to Help Save a Life
At least 1.7 million construction workers could be protected from cancer-causing silica if an OSHA protection - stalled for two years - is put into action. Now there's a petition to the White House urging that the protection be put into place.
In the time it takes to create an account at the White House website - about three minutes - more than three more workers will have been exposed to silica. Sign the petition to tell the White House to protect construction workers by putting a plan into place. The deadline for signatures is February 11. Make good use of three minutes by helping to keep your fellow union members healthy - and alive - and then share this petition with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, email and any other ways you can: http://wh.gov/E3Ta
