Thousands of workers from across Michigan and beyond will march to a rally at the State Capitol Building in Lansing on Tuesday, Dec. 11. We need you there.

On Thursday, Republican legislators passed the worst anti-worker legislation Michigan has ever seen after workers were locked out of the Capitol for hours in the cold. On Tuesday, legislators will be back in Lansing to vote a final time on a Right to Work-for-less bill, which will destroy Michigan jobs and reduce our pay and benefits.
Governor Snyder has said he will sign this legislation if it gets to his desk.
For us, this isn't about union workers or non-union workers; this is about the future of Michigan and ensuring that every family can have a shot at a better life through good paying jobs and access to vital services like education and health care.
We need you to join thousands of your brothers and sisters as we make our voices heard and tell Michigan lawmakers to oppose this anti-worker, anti-family legislation.
When: Tuesday, Dec.11, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Where: Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing, Mich. (Map [ https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Lansing+Center,+333+E.+Michigan+Ave.,+Lansing,+Michigan&hl=en&sll=42.301978,-83.146918&sspn=0.709969,1.674042&hq=Lansing+Center,+333+E.+Michigan+Ave.,+Lansing,+Michigan&radius=15000&t=m&z=13 ])

Politicians backed by corporate special interests king Dick DeVos, and Governor Rick Snyder are plotting to destroy the state that labor built by pushing through this last minute so-called "Right to Work" legislation. The only thing it provides for is the eroding of workers' power and voices in the workplace.
Show your friends and family that you stand in solidarity with Michigan's working families, and against the anti-worker policies of Governor Snyder.
