UpFront – Jane Slaughter on Michigan; John Burris and Ali WInston on the OPD

One of the most union-dense states in the country has signed into law so-called “right to work” legislation that make it harder for unions to collect dues. So, what happened? We talk to union activists in Michigan, and Jane Slaughter of Labor Notes. Then: a federal judge has just signed off on an agreement that will spare Oakland the humiliation of having the first police department ever placed into receivership — we’ll talk with civil rights attorney John Burris and investigative journalist Ali Winston about what’s next.
