Union Gets $241k From Turning Teachers Over to Collection Agency

The state’s largest teachers union has turned many public school employees over to collection agencies when they stopped paying union dues after the state’s right-to-work law became effective.

Between 2013 and 2016, the Michigan Education Association reported receipts of more than $241,000 from teachers it had turned over to bill collection agencies, according to disclosures the union filed with the federal government.
