Washtenaw Democrats Host 'Right to Work' Forum March 7

Voters can learn about the pending law at a public forum in Scio Township on March 7.

The Western Washtenaw Democrats are reaching out to voters with a special forum on March 7 prior to the Right to Work legislation taking effect in Michigan.

Democrats will discuss the consequences of the law and what can be done to overturn it.

The event will take place at 7 p.m. at the IBEW Hall, 7920 Jackson Road in Scio Township.

Panelists will include state Sen. Gretchen Whitmer, Michigan AFL-CIO President Karla Swift, and David Hecker, president of the Michigan American Federation of Teachers.

“We hope to provide a forum for an intelligent, reasoned, and relevant discussion of the Michigan version of the right to work law that was passed in December 2012 with no committee discussion and no public participation, by a lame-duck legislature and our governor,” said Chairman Roy Schmidt.
