Battle lines have been drawn over law’s chances in Michigan this year

By Craig Farrand, The News-Herald

For all the words spoken thus far in the battle over right to work in Michigan, the ultimate showdown may be one between GOP-sponsored legislation vs. a union-backed constitutional amendment — even though Gov. Rick Snyder would prefer both ideas to simply go away.

On the one side, Republican leaders in the state House of Representatives haven’t introduced legislation yet and won’t say when they might.

But observers say it’s just a matter of time.

On the other side, and in order to pre-empt such legislation, United Auto Workers’ union President Bob King has launched a petition drive to place a constitutional amendment on the fall ballot that would prohibit right-to- work laws in the state.
