"Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has signed a right-to-work bill limiting union power into law in his state, he announced in a press conference on Tuesday evening.
"I view this as an opportunity to stand up for Michigan's workers—to be pro-worker," Snyder said.
"I don't view this as anti-union at all...I believe this is pro-worker."
Earlier on Tuesday the GOP controlled state house approved a law that would make the payment of union dues voluntary for private-sector unions and most public-sector unions (police and firefighters would be exempt.) The bill was approved by a vote of 58-51."
