LANSING (WWJ) – Police carried dozens of protesters from a hallway leading to the Wisconsin Assembly today as Democratic representatives pounded on the locked door of the chamber. They were demanding to be let in to the room where a vote was scheduled on an explosive bill that would take away public workers’ collective bargaining rights.

Here in Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says he remains committed to collective bargaining.

“I believe that collective bargaining is a good way to get a good answer. When I presented our budget, we do need concessions in our state, we are going though very difficult economic times and it’s a shared sacrifice model. But when I asked for that and I showed that number, I actually pointed out to people that we didn’t put specific items  because we want to work through the collective bargaining process,” say Snyder.

 Snyder has said that he won’t “pick fights” with unions.
