Go, Michigan! I wish that CT were a right to work state. When I was teaching, I did not join the union. However, the unions (local, state, and NEA) still took about 2/3 of the regular dues from my salary. I looked into the legality of it and was told by a lawyer that the unions had made sure that was part of their agreement with the state. All that money taken and for what? Nothing. Evidently those who have to now write checks to pay dues in RTW states understand that and opt out.
