Michigan Supreme Court
NFIB has supported home-based day care providers who are protesting an effort by the state of Michigan to unilaterally unionize day care providers who provide care to low-income families receiving state subsidies. As part of this union, the providers had dues withheld from state subsidy payments provided to low-income families.
Status: DECIDED. Amicus brief filed in April 2010. On Sept. 16, 2010, the supreme court ordered the appellate court to explain its six-word order dismissing the case. On Sept. 23, 2010, court of appeals affirmed dismissal explaining that providers are public employees.
