Michigan Freedom Fund, headed by a DeVos associate, airs ads supporting right to work - 2012-12-05
LANSING -- A new group calling itself the the "Michigan Freedom Fund" has begun running radio and television ads in support of "right-to-work" legislation.
The advocacy organization, run by Greg McNeilly, an employee of Dick DeVos' Windquest Group, yesterday announced a 60-second statewide radio ad, and The Detroit Free Press reports that one of the first television commercials ran in the metro area last night.
A right-to-work law would prohibit unions from requiring employees to pay dues as a condition of employment. UAW President Bob King has compared potential legislation to a "war on workers," and unions say it would hurt their ability to fight for employee wages and benefits.
