The Michigan House has passed "Right to Work" legislation by a vote of 58 to 52.

Calling all Michiganders!  We have FIVE days to swarm our state senators with phone calls to object this legislation. If you don't know who your state senator is, you can find him or her here.

Here's a district map.

US Mail for all Senators can be addressed as follows:

Senator Name
Post Office Box 30036
Lansing, MI  48909-7536

Office buildings and phone numbers for all Michigan State Senators are at the first link!

Please send a respectful letter telling your senator that you object to the passage of the Right to Work Law, and that you urge him or her to vote AGAINST it.

Again, we only have five days to make this right, so let's flood their offices with calls and letters of opposition!

Thank you.

UPDATE:  Michigan Public Radio was wrong about the five day period.  The Senate has now passed this bill, so it's a done deal.

4:30 PM PT: I want to share this video with you of Rep. Brandon Dillon (D-Grand Rapids) on the House floor chastising the Michigan GOP for ramrodding this legislation through without sharing it with the Democrats.

It's eloquent, articulate and spot on.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
