“We didn’t want to have compulsory dues,” Perialas noted. “Originally what unions were supposed to do was serve their members but now they serve themselves.”
Though Michigan is now a right-to-work state, at the time that wasn’t the case. Perialas and the other members dissatisfied with the MEA had no choice but to decertify the union and start their own. A union designed to serve its members.
“When we are small we can be responsive to our members,” Perialas said proudly. “We offer them a good service.”
“We are customers of our own services,” he continued. “It’s a model I’m proud of, and I think it’s the way of the future.”
