Gov. Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette are trying to block a statewide ballot initiative aimed at protecting collective bargaining rights for workers.
Snyder and Schuette filed court papers on Monday that would scuttle the Protect Our Jobs ballot proposal. The plan would write collective bargaining rights into the Michigan Constitution by placing the issue before voters in the November general election.
