Michigan Teachers Union Head Compares Right To Work Push With Pearl Harbor Attacks!
STEVEN COOK - MICHIGAN EDUCATION ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT (07 DEC 2012): Let me say, it's telling that this should all happen around Pearl Harbor day because let me tell you something, organized labor has spent about 10 days here in the last two weeks working with the leadership, the political leadership in the state. We thought that they were interested in peace. We thought that they were interested in trying to work out an agreement, an arrangement, have a discussion that would keep right to work from coming up. This is what the governor kept telling us, it's not on my agenda. Come to find out that they had every moment we were sitting with them had planned for this. So while we were trying to prevent the war that was coming, they were planning for the war all along. So it's telling it should all happen around Pearl Harbor day. You know, we thought they were working for peace. Turns out we were wrong.
