MICHIGAN, Feb. 13, 2024 ~ The repeal of Michigan‘s right-to-work law took effect Tuesday, the first state to remove such a law in over sixty years.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed the repeal last year in March, ditching the law signed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder in 2012. Right-to-work laws have long been criticized for being anti-union by hindering unionized workers’ abilities to collectively bargain.
