SUPERIOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Opponents of right-to-work laws plan to gather near the home of Gov. Rick Snyder to encourage him to reverse his stance on the legislation.

A group called We Are Michigan says it plans to sing Christmas carols on Monday evening near the Republican's home in Washtenaw County's Superior Township, near Ann Arbor.

The group's spokesman Dave Kreisman tells AnnArbor.com he's expecting several dozen people to participate. He says he hopes Snyder "will hear the sounds of the season" and reconsider.

The Republican governor has pledged to sign the legislation.

On Sunday, people in Kalamazoo and the Detroit suburb of Troy sang Christmas-themed protest songs in response to the legislature's right-to-work actions last week. Protests are expected this week in Lansing and union officials are asking people to wear red.
