MEA Response to Misguided Supreme Court Decision: “We are not going away”

Jul 02, 2018

Recently, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling against labor unions in the Janus v. AFSCME case, MEA President Paula Herbart’s statement made clear that MEA and our members are committed to advocating for our students and our colleagues. 

“Six years ago, when Michigan Republicans rammed through their attack on unions, many predicted MEA’s death.  They were wrong,” Herbart said. “Educators and this union continued to fight for what we’ve always fought for: a great public education for every child, regardless of zip code, and a level playing field that results in fair wages, benefits and working conditions for all.”

“We are not going away, nor will the unions in other states who are negatively affected by today’s decision.”
