MCLF Client to Testify on U-M Unionization Effort

Mackinac Center Client to Testify Tomorrow Before State Senate Committee on Effort to Unionize U-M Graduate Student Research Assistants

 

MIDLAND — Melinda Day, a graduate student research assistant at the University of Michigan and a client of the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation, will testify tomorrow before the Michigan Senate Committee on Government Operations, which is scheduled to meet at 11 a.m. in Rooms 402 and 403 at the Capitol.

Day is one of 370 graduate student research assistants represented by the MCLF in a case where a union is attempting to organize U-M GSRAs for collective bargaining purposes against the university, despite the fact that current regulations stipulate they are not university employees. The committee hearing is focused on legislation that would explicitly establish in statute that such students are not public employees.
