Michigan citizens. We need to protect ourselves from the greed of Unions being forced upon us by their demands for legislation change to Michigan's Constitution. We can not let this happen. http://protectingmichigantaxpayers.com/about-ubbi Unions in Michigan are now canvassing citizens for signatures to give Unions extraordinary powers in the state related to collective bargaining and forced Union dues. Be very careful on what you sign. 1. Michigan Conservative Alliance: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Michigan-Conservative-Alliance-MICA/135355703224881 2.
