Michigan Education Association: Teachers still paying dues

LANSING (WKZO) -- The head of the Michigan Education Association says only a small number of union members are not paying dues under the state's Right to Work law.

Steve Cook says approximately 1,500 of the 150-thousand members have declined to continue to pay their dues. However, the union does not have a complete picture on the effect of the law since some district's extended their teachers contracts prior to the law going into effect.

The union is not planning to have any effort to rescind the Right to Work law in 2014.
