In 2012, Michigan became the 24th Freedom to Work state. 

ABC of Michigan is dedicated to supporting and defending this law and opposes legislation that would repeal freedom to work.
Michigan’s Freedom to Work (also known as "Right to Work") law prohibits forced union affiliation as a condition of employment for a particular job. One of ABC of Michigan's primary purposes is to support the right of individuals to chose whether or not they want to belong to a union. We strongly oppose discrimination based on union affiliation.

Freedom to Work in Michigan empowers individuals to make their own decision on whether or not to join a labor union instead of being forced to pay union dues and/or fees as a condition of employment.
