Michigan AFL-CIO Starts Petition Drive To Block Anti-Collective Bargaining Bills

By Nora Macaluso, BNA Daily Labor Report, Feb 23, 2012

The Michigan AFL-CIO Feb. 23 launched a petition drive for voters to ask state lawmakers and Gov. Rick Snyder (R) to stop efforts to advance legislation limiting collective bargaining and curtailing workers' rights. There are more than 80 bills making their way through the Michigan legislature that “chip away at collective bargaining rights,” Todd Cook, state director of We Are The People told reporters during a Feb. 23 conference call. The group's website identifies We Are The People as “a diverse coalition of students, seniors, workers and families fighting to protect Michigan's middle class.”
