      Auto workers will protest during governor's speech

      United Auto Workers, protest, labor unions, hurting middle class, GOP, union dues. The United Auto Workers (UAW) and other labor unions are calling on members to protest before and during Governor Rick Snyder's third State of the State address in Lansing.

      Snyder's speech is scheduled for Wednesday evening in the Michigan State Capitol.

      The UAW and other unions are planning to be outside to protest GOP policies they say are hurting the middle class.

      They're especially upset about a new law ending requirements that workers pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.
