A strong majority of Michigan voters (70%) continue to support theright of workers to organize and bargain collectively over wages,benefits, and working conditions, including a majority (55%) of thosewho voted No on Proposal 2. Michigan voters support collectivebargaining because they believe it helps provide people the goodwages and benefits that can support a family and build the middleclass in Michigan. Michiganders also understand the essential benefitsof collective bargaining, including the fact that it gives firefighters avoice in setting safety standards and equipment levels to protect ourcommunities, that it helps protect pensions and retirement income,and that it helps teachers bargain for a better education for ourchildren.Although voters ultimately rejected Proposal 2, their vote was not avote against collective bargaining. The most common reason forvoting against Proposal 2 was that voters were convinced not tochange the constitution. Just 7% said their main reason for votingagainst Proposal 2 was because they oppose collective bargainingrights.With the election behind us, voters overwhelmingly (83% agree, 64%strongly agree) are ready for politicians in Lansing to get to workcreating jobs and improving education, not changing rules aboutunions or collective bargaining. That includes almost equal numbers of Yes and No voters.
