"Absolutely going to stay strong," said Brett Brown, a member of the UAW Local 602. "Because we're a necessary institution for working families. We represent safe work environments, fair wages, health benefits."
"I think in some cases, there will be decreases in membership," said Jeff Breslin, president of the Michigan Nurses Association. "In nursing, if we're working side by side and you're paying dues and I'm not, that's going to create a divide. We're not going to stand together to watch out for patient safety like we would if we we're both on the same team."
"A union is going to find it a little more difficult to raise dues and increase its own revenue because when it raises its dues, now members will start to be able to think well maybe I don't want to be part of it," said Luke. "What we get into here is a potential free-rider problem. It becomes attractive to someone who says I can save these dues if I'm not a member and still get all the benefits."
"It's going to have to spend a little bit less time and resources lobbying and pushing for political action and it'll have to start devoting more resources basically to internal affairs to try to market itself," said Luke.
Luke predicts RTW won't eliminate the existence of unions just change how they do business.
Luke's main point is that the law will impact how a union operates.
Lansing Community College Economics Professor Jim Luke says the law won't have an immediate effect until contracts expire, but believes unions will slowly lose members over time.
Unions have differing opinions on how the RTW law will hit their membership numbers.
LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Now that the Right-to-Work law is in effect, what does this mean for the future of unions? Will they stay or will they go?
