UAW members prepare for Tuesday 'Right to Work' protest

Posted: Updated:
DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (WJBK) -

Preparations are underway for a massive union demonstration Tuesday in Lansing to protest "Right to Work" legislation. Just a few days ago, a big crowd gathered at the Capitol. Many were locked out of the building, State Police used pepper spray on some protesters, and some were arrested.

Saturday, members of UAW Local 600 in Dearborn were getting ready to head back to Lansing Tuesday when lawmakers are scheduled to reconvene and vote.
