A grassroots coalition called "Michigan Freedom to Work" held a news conference June 30, 2011, at several locations around the state, including Lansing. Several union members and others gathered in the Capitol building to announce their new coalition and plans to push for legislation to add Michigan to the list of states that have enacted right-to-work laws. These laws allow workers to choose whether or not to join a union at their place of employment.
