Gov. Rick Snyder now says right-to-work is 'on the agenda'

Detroit Free Press Lansing Bureau


LANSING -- Right-to-work is now "on the agenda" at the state Capitol, but no decision has been made on whether to pass such a law, Gov. Rick Snyder said today.

Snyder's remarks signal a marked departure from his previous stance. For months, the governor said such a law was not on his agenda.

Snyder made the comments after a lengthy meeting in his Capitol office with the legislatures GOP leadership, House Speaker Jase Bolger and Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville.

Snyder said talks will continue and no decisions have been made.

He did say there is a view that unions must put something on the table if right-to-work is not to proceed, after having gone ahead with a collective bargaining ballot proposal against his urging in last month’s election.

5. Just received this email call to action for Wednesday, Dec. 5

WE NEED YOUR HELP TOMORROW


Volunteer tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5, as a Citizen Lobbyist or an Event Marshal:

Citizen Lobbyists will be visiting legislative offices to tell Representatives and Senators to oppose Right-to-Work legislation. Shifts for Citizen Lobbyists start at 8:00am and again at 9:30am.

Marshals will be leading a group of 5 to 10 citizen lobbyists around the Capitol. Marshals should arrive at 7:30am.

Please arrive at the Lansing Center (333 E. Michigan Avenue, Lansing, MI) before your shift begins.


Click here to sign up to let us know we can count on you tomorrow.


If you cannot attend the action tomorrow, please stay tuned to our Facebook page for more updates. We will continue to urge legislators not to pursue so-called "Right to Work" through this weekend and next week with events in Lansing and across Michigan.

In Solidarity,

9. Rick Snyder is a GOPer. He's a quiet version of Wisconsin's Scott Walker.

8. When unions fought this in Louisiana they said,

"Right to Work" really meant "right to work For Less" and they were spot on.

10. Right to starve

Eventually, the working man and woman will stand up and say "no more!" And they will be carrying baseball bats.

13. I predict, Snyder will be the last Republican Governer Michigan will see for a really long time.

too many people fell for the "we need a good businessman to fix the economy" lie. and put the fox in charge of the hen house.

15. Unions "have to put something on the table"?

Ahh, I see, they have to be willing to work for $5 an hour. By the way, "decisions" have been made. All of my repug friends with good union jobs they like to brag about will feel the wrath soon, just as I told them they would.

16. I just can't believe

my home state, the place where I grew up, as close to ground zero for the labor movement as you can get, has turned so damed Republican. How in the hell did this guy get elected?
