Union membership rises in Michigan

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan's unions got larger in 2013 despite the passage of right-to-work laws.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports union membership was up by four-thousand last year compared to 2012, but the percentage of workers who belong to a union fell 0.3-percent to 16.3-percent.

AFL-CIO President Karla Swift noted the numbers show organized labor remains a strong force in Michigan "in spite of repeated attacks on working people and their right to organize by Governor Snyder and Republicans" in the Legislature.
