The Michigan Collective Bargaining Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot in Michigan as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposal would guarantee the right to collective bargaining for all employees, either in the public or private sectors.[1]

The primary sponsor was Senate Majority Leader Gretchen Whitmer.

The proposal was announced on March 16, 2011 following a union-led rally at the state Capitol in opposition to Gov. Rick Snyder's budget and tax plan.[2][1]
