VIDEO: Right to Work protesters in Detroit's Cadillac Place

DETROIT (WXYZ) - About 100 protesters showed up at the Detroit Office of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder Wednesday afternoon.

Protesters moved in and out of the Cadillac Place building in Detroit's New Center area.

Organizers say they were from the Michigan AFL-CIO and SEIU union.

They plan to continue the political fight after Right to Work legislation was passed into law Tuesday when Michigan became the 24th Right to Work state.

The new law allows public and private sector to decide whether to join the union in their workplace.

For decades, Michigan has been a closed-shop state, meaning people were required to join the union if it covered their job.

No arrests were made in the demonstration today. Union leaders plan to continue demonstrating against the governor and other republicans.
