House, Senate Pass Controversial "Right to Work" Legislation

Dec 7, 2012

The Michigan House and Senate have passed the legislation in different versions, and may take final action on the bills next week. Michigan could become the 24th state to say workers cannot be forced to pay union dues even if they work for a business or government employer with union representation.

Opponents of Right to Work legislation demonstrate at the state Capitol in Lansing Thursday. Final action on the legislation could occur as early as next week.
