UAW President Bob King calls on Gov. Rick Snyder to veto any right-to-work bill, avoid dividing state

By Jonathan Oosting,

United Auto Workers President Bob King joined hundreds of union protesters at the Michigan Capitol today as tensions mounted over potential right-to-work legislation.

State lawmakers are expected to introduce legislation this week that would prohibit unions from requiring membership as a condition of employment.

King, seen chanting with protesters and clapping a third-floor railing, called on Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to reject the bills.

“Labor wanted to keep this state on the right track,” he told MLive. “We think right to work is divisive. The governor said it for two years. He needs to lead. He needs to say he’s going to veto. If he doesn’t want to divide the state, then he’s got to veto right to work.”
