Michigan Supreme Court Revisits Right-To-Work Law

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich (AP) -- The Michigan Supreme Court is taking up the state's Right-To-Work law.

More specifically, the court will decide if state employees are covered by the law.

In August, a state appeals court said the law does apply to 35,000 state workers.

 The law says public and private workers don't have to pay union fees as a condition of their employment.  

 More than two-thirds of state employees are represented by unions.  

 Opponents of the law say it undermines constitutional rights of the Michigan Civil Service Commission.
