Law On Graduate Student Union Ban Struck Down

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Graduate students in Michigan hoping to unionize at public universities are one step closer to doing so.

A federal judge in Flint struck down a law blocking graduate students from joining a union.

Judge Mark Goldsmith says the law violates the Change of Purpose clause in the state's constitution.

The 2012 law was originally drafted to address the powers of emergency managers and provisions regarding graduate student unions were put into the bill.
