More on the Protect Our Jobs constitutional amendment drive in Michigan


Stop the attacks on organized labor

This past weekend at the Michigan Democratic Party Endorsement Convention, Michigan AFL-CIO President Karla Swift led a training session for people that will circulate petitions for the Protect Our Jobs constitutional amendment drive.

As I wrote before, the effort has the goal of enshrining protections for collective bargaining rights in Michigan’s constitution.

Bonnie Bucqueroux of Lansing Online News has posted some videos from last week’s press conference and has offered to share them here with the Eclectablog audience. In it, various folks from education, labor, the clergy and others shared their feelings on the Protect Our Jobs push and the need to protect collective bargaining rights for all Michiganders.
