LANSING (WXYZ) - Tuesday night after two key Right to Work bills passed in the House, Governor Snyder singed them into law. So, what happens now?
The law goes into effect 90 days after this legislative session ends, which is technically December 31. Beyond that, a worker can not opt out of a union until the current contract expires.
For example; the UAW contract with the automakers runs to September of 2015, so UAW workers who might want to stop paying union dues have to wait until this contract ends.
Constitutional lawyer Robert Sedler says there could be some difficult times when the law goes into effect. This may be especially true when workers are on the line, side-by-side - both receiving union benefits but some may no longer be paying dues.
