Feds say state union violated rights of its own employees

LANSING, MI (AP) -

A labor union that represents state of Michigan workers is in hot water over the treatment of its own employees.

The Michigan State Employees Association has been ordered to reinstate some fired workers and restore lost wages and benefits. The Detroit Free Press says the 2-1 decision from the National Labor Relations Board was made on Aug. 4.

The 4,500-member union has employees who are represented by another union, the Central Office Staff Association. Brandon Zuk, an attorney for the state employees union, says an appeal is planned. He denies any "animus" toward members of the staff union.

The NLRB says the state employees union unilaterally implemented work rules and took work away from office staff.
