Unions to Continue Fight Against Right to Work

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Union leaders and workers say Gov. Rick Snyder offered no olive branch in his State of the State address and they will keep fighting the right-to-work legislation he recently signed.

United Auto Workers Local 652 President Mike Green was among about 200 union workers protesting outside the Capitol on Wednesday night.  He said Thursday that Snyder's silence on unions was "just like he didn't pay attention to what the people wanted in the first place."

Green won't discuss concrete steps the union will take to fight the legislation that Snyder signed into law last month but says union workers "are not going away."

Union members picketed Thursday outside a Snyder appearance in Midland.

Right-to-work laws bar unions from collecting mandatory fees from workers they represent under collective bargaining agreements.
