Progress Michigan on New Civil Service Rules

LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the new civil service rules that were pushed through the Michigan Civil Service Commission by anti-union Snyder appointees.

“This is all part of the right-wing’s plan to bust unions, defund the left, and give more power to their corporate donors in our democracy and in the workplace, while decreasing economic security for state workers and their families at the same time,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “This is a continuation of the assault on working people that Jase Bolger, Rick Snyder, Brian Calley, and Bill Schuette started with the passage of Right to Work. They are trying to chip away at peoples’ right to organize and the benefits they have won from working together collectively. Republicans in Michigan are rigging the rules for their corporate donors while working families get left behind. Progress Michigan stands in solidarity with workers and will continue to fight these abuses in every way possible.”
