LANSING (WTVB) - With organized labor losing ground in Wisconsin and Indiana, the battle over Proposal 2 on the Michigan ballot is gaining a lot of attention. "Prop 2" would guarantee public and private workers the right to form unions and bargain collectively. Both sides have been accused of stretching the truth in their arguments on the measure. Dearborn public school teacher John Beyerl says he wishes voters would use some common sense in sorting it all out.
Michigan labor leaders say Governor Snyder's emergency management law has eroded the rights of workers in many cities, and they believe a constitutional amendment is needed to protect working families.
