Workers' Rights Battle Goes National at Pivotal Time

Feb. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Unions and their allies are planning rallies, vigils and news conferences in at least 27 states this week against what they see as a national attack on government employees that is a seminal moment for organized labor. Demonstrations are spreading from Wisconsin and Ohio, where bills from Republican governors to curtail collective-bargaining rights have attracted thousands of protestors.
