MEA Updates Frequently Asked Questions in the 3% Case

Jan 14, 2018

December 20th, marked a major victory for Michigan school employees, as the Michigan Supreme Court unanimously ruled to return more than a half billion dollars illegally taken from school employees in the long-running 3 percent case.
In a dramatic December conclusion to a nearly 8-year-long legal battle, the Court ruled 6-0 to uphold lower court rulings that found the withholding to be illegal on a variety of constitutional grounds.
“I cannot imagine a better pre-holiday gift to Michigan’s school employees than getting their hard-earned money returned to them,” said MEA President Paula Herbart. “This is the culmination of years of work by both AFT Michigan and MEA on behalf of our members.  This reinforces why being a member of a union matters – working collectively, we won this case that no individual could have fought for themselves.”

MEA General Council, Michael Shoudy, has updated a set of Frequently Asked Questions to assist members who have questions in regards to the 3% refund.  Please click here to review these FAQ's.
