The union-backed measure in Michigan ("Taking America's pulse before the election" Nov. 4) to make collective bargaining a constitutional right and to make right-to-work laws unconstitutional is very interesting in view of the fact that the U.S. Constitution is a right-to-work law.
The First Amendment gives us the right of free speech and free assembly. What better use of free speech and free assembly do we have than to choose who will represent us and with whom we will assemble?
I think the unions in Michigan or any state will have very little luck in taking the First Amendment out of the Constitution.
