Michigan’s right-to-work law, which took effect late last week, has done little so far to prevent unions across the state from locking in contracts that obligate employees to continue paying dues for the foreseeable future.

Right-to-work was signed into law by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder last December, ostensibly giving all Michigan employees the right to opt-out of joining a union or paying dues. But the three-month delay between the law’s creation and its implementation gave public unions a window to get far-reaching contracts approved by sympathetic government agencies, including districts and universities.

Some 50 school districts approved new union contracts prior to the April 28th deadline, forcing members to continue supporting the union.
