LORDSTOWN, Ohio - United Auto Workers say they will be wearing red over the next three days to show support for working families in Michigan and opposition to efforts to make Michigan the next right to work state.
A long time mainstay in the south, right to work laws make it illegal to require workers to financially support unions as a condition of employment.
"It's a blatant attack on unionism is what it is and they're making no bones about it. They're driving through with stipulations that the members can't even vote on it in Michigan," said Glenn Johnson, President of UAW Local 1112 at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Lordstown.
Indiana become the first right to work state in the upper mid west this year and the auto workers say after Michigan, Ohio could be the next target.
