Fiscal Cliff: Michigan Union Experiencing Same Pension Headache it Forces on Schools

Actually, Fred, I think that it is you who have a reading comprehension problem. I did NOT say that pensions are a good idea; I only said that the Union was providing the same type of benefit to their employees that they demand from us. They would be hypocrites if they were denying their employees pensions.

When it rains it pours for the Michigan Education Association.

It was recently defeated on Election Day when it attempted to pass a ballot proposal that would have enshrined collective bargaining in the state constitution. Now it’s in full panic mode about a rumored Right to Work bill that may be introduced in the state legislature.

So as the union’s power is waning, it appears the cupboard may be going bare, too.

The MEA has been foundering under staggering liabilities for the last few years, and it may have just gone over the cliff.

Despite only a minor drop...
