  •  Prop 2 (1+ / 0-)

    was the attempt to enshrine collective bargaining in the Michigan state constitution. It was on the ballot this fall, and it failed pretty soundly. Snyder points to the unions support of the measure as his reason for changing his mind on right-to-work (for less), though that's probably just a convenient excuse. From what I've heard, the wording of Prop 2 was pretty broad, and a lot of people thought it would have gone too far (I don't know the details).
