Snyder says Mich. shouldn't be right-to-work state

DETROIT, Dec. 12, 2011 (AP): Gov. Rick Snyder still maintains he doesn't want Michigan to become a right-to-work state.

The Republican governor told a caller on WJR radio's Frank Beckmann Show Monday that he doesn't want to repeat the experiences of Wisconsin and Ohio, where anti-union measures have been extremely divisive.

Ohio voters last month threw out tough new laws limiting public workers' collective bargaining rights, and Wisconsin's governor faces a recall effort after pushing through similar changes.

Snyder says Michigan has taken steps to encourage job growth that will be more useful than a right-to-work law, such as significantly cutting business taxes effective Jan. 1.

He adds many of the new jobs being created in Michigan aren't in unionized industries anyway.

He didn't say if he'd veto a right-to-work measure, calling the question ``hypothetical.''
