    Michigan Republican Governor, Rick Snyder late Tuesday afternoon, signed into law a contentious plan limiting the power of unions, and Ohio unions worry Michigan's Right to Work movement will spread.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed right-to-work legislation, dealing a devastating and once-unthinkable defeat to organized labor in a state that has been a cradle of the movement for generations.
    
He put his signatures on the bills Tuesday, hours after the state House passed the measures as the chants of thousands of angry pro-union protesters filled the Capitol.
    
Snyder says a failed ballot proposal to enshrine collective bargaining rights in the constitution triggered the discussion that led to the passage and signing of right-to-work.
    
During a news conference, he called the protests "an exercise in democracy."
