Unions File Suit Against Civil Service Rule Changes

SEIU members, in coalition with the UAW and AFSCME, sued the Michigan Civil Service Commissioners in U.S. district court, declaring that their recent rule change violates our constitutional rights. SEIU Local 517M member Roland Whitelow, an unemployment insurance agent, was quoted in the coverage:
whitelow2“I’ve been working around 10 hours a day, six days a week at the Unemployment Insurance Agency, trying to process all the skyrocketing claims so struggling Michiganders can keep a roof over their heads and put food on the table… State employees are dedicated to supporting the people of our state, and all we ask for in return is fair treatment.”
