Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and the Republican-controlled Legislature's top two leaders say they will seek right-to-work legislation for the state. Snyder, House Speaker Jase Bolger and Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville say they will introduce the bills on Dec. 6, 2012, and will push for quick passage.
So-called right-to-work measures generally prohibit requiring unions from collecting fees from nonunion employees, which opponents say drains unions of money and weakens their ability to bargain for good wages and benefits. Supporters insist it would boost the economy and job creation. - AP
