    FMLA became effective on August 5, 1993, for most employers. If a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) was in effect on that date, FMLA became effective on the expiration date of the CBA or February 5, 1994, whichever was earlier. FMLA entitles eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period for specified family and medical reasons

Sweeping and cleaning the machines was a common practice.
    Now there's a union I could support.

    Freedom comes to Michigan? Who would have thought it? Do you believe the majority of the people support having to join a union and pay dues just so they can work?

    If blood flows let us hope it will be the blood of union thugs and toadies.

    Prove the majority opposes right to work. (I hate to say "prove it," but I do think you're wrong.) The majority of union members no doubt opposes right to work. The rest of us? I actually doubt it.

    The survey, commissioned by Inside Michigan Politics, showed that 58 percent of likely voters support right-to-work. Opposition among Michigan voters participating in the survey was at 37 percent.

    The poll found a 54% majority said they generally favor right-to-work laws, with 40% opposed.

    As legislators this week sparred over right-to-work legislation in a post-election "lame-duck" session, a new Mitchell Poll shows that a majority (51 percent) of Michigan voters support a Right-to-Work Law. Only 41 percent of the voters oppose it, while 8 percent are undecided.

    Your comment is just about as inciting of violence as his.

    The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
    And that Act became law and helped all workers who worked for companies with 50 or more employees instead of just the few union workers whose unions had a collective bargaining agreement that allowed for Family and Medical leaves.
