MGEC negotiates with MMB in collective bargaining, seeking wages and benefits that compare to the engineering industry. The Janus versus AFSCME decision made it unconstitutional to collect involuntary Fair Share Union dues. If more and more MGEC members opt not to be full members, or opt not to voluntarily contribute to MGEC, erosion of the Union and collective bargaining occurs. Ultimately, this could lead to a “Right-to Work” workplace. Wisconsin, Michigan, South Dakota, and North Dakota are now all “Right-to Work States”. Top Salary for Senior Engineers in these states compared to Minnesota are shown below. Protect your wages and your benefits, be a full MGEC member.
