Latest attack: In Michigan

LANSING, Mich. — In another blow to public employee collective-bargaining rights, the Michigan House and Senate have passed legislation allowing non-elected emergency financial managers in financially struggling cities and school districts to terminate union contracts for teachers and other public employees.

The bill is now before Republican Gov. Mitch Snyder for signature.
