Gary Glenn Receives Top National Right To Work Award

We were pleased to support a great American patriot, Gary Glenn, when he ran for the United States Senate from Michigan in 2012.  Since then he has been elected to the Michigan House of Representatives where he has been a dynamic vice chairman of the House Energy Committee and also serves on the Commerce and Trade, Tax Policy, and Military and Veterans Affairs committees.

Recently, Gary's lifetime of work on behalf of right-to-work legislation has been recognized by the National Right to Work Committee.  The Midland Daily News has the story:

State Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, on Friday was named recipient of the Senator Everett M. Dirksen Award, the highest honor bestowed annually by the National Right to Work Committee to an individual “making the most outstanding contribution to public awareness and understanding of the Right to Work principle.”

The annual award is named after the Republican Minority Leader from Illinois who in 1966 led a filibuster in the U.S. Senate that blocked President Lyndon B. Johnson’s effort to repeal the section of federal law that empowers states to enact Right to Work legislation. Twenty-five states — including Michigan and Indiana in 2012 and, just last month, Wisconsin — have enacted laws prohibiting compulsory unionism as a condition of employment.
