National Right to Work Foundation files “Motion to Intervene” on his behalf .
(Ypsilanti, Mi.) -Terry Bowman, UAW member and president of Union Conservatives, Inc., a Michigan 501(c)4 non-profit organization, has announced that the National Right to Work Foundation has filed a motion to “intervene” on his behalf in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan against a lawsuit filed to strike down Michigan’s recent Right to Work law.
“I find it disappointing that union officials are working so hard to deny union workers the rights, freedoms, and protections that they just received through Michigan’s Right to Work law.” said Bowman who has been a Right to Work advocate for Michigan’s union workforce. “With the help from the National Right to Work Foundation, I hope to set an example to Michigan’s 629,000 union member workforce that union executives do not have the right to strip us of our lawful freedoms and protections authorized by Michigan’s Right to Work law.”
Along with Bowman, fellow UAW member and spokesman for Michigan Freedom to Work coalition Brian Pannebecker has been included, as has two other union members from Michigan. If granted, the workers’ motion to intervene would make them full participants in the lawsuit.
In February, the Michigan State AFL-CIO union, the union-affiliated group Change to Win, and the AFL-CIO-affiliated Michigan State Building and Construction Trades Council union filed a federal lawsuit claiming that federal labor law preempts Michigan’s Right to Work law.
