Lansing teachers seek new contract before 'Right to Work' kicks in

Feb 19, 2013

In five weeks, Michigan’s so-called Right to Work law takes effect.  Some local Michigan teacher unions are working to lock in new contracts before then.  In some cases, it’s an effort to delay the impact of the controversial new law since it will not include contracts already in place by March 27, when it takes effect. 

Guillermo Lopez, president of the Lansing School Board, and Rick Pluta, managing editor of the Michigan Public Radio Network, discuss what's happening in Lansing.
