An autoworker in Michigan has filed an unfair labor practice charge with the NLRB accusing the United Auto Workers (UAW) of refusing his repeated requests to withdraw his membership and stop paying dues. According to a story in the Detroit News, the employee twice sent withdrawal notices to the UAW via certified mail, but the union declined his request to withdraw his membership. He alleges the union’s actions are in violation of Michigan’s right to work law which took effect in 2013. The article also reports the employee is being assisted in his claims with the NLRB by the National Right to Work Defense Foundation Inc. The complete article can be found here.
