LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The United Auto Workers and other labor unions are calling on members to protest before and during Gov. Rick Snyder's third State of the State address in Lansing.
The Republican governor's speech is scheduled for Wednesday evening in the state Capitol.
The UAW and other unions are planning to be outside to protest GOP policies they say are hurting the middle class. They're especially upset about a new law ending requirements that workers pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.
The UAW wants members to bring families, friends, co-workers and children to the demonstration.
