Anti-union measure to be debated in 4 states

With Washington silent for now on legislation championed by unions, the debate is playing out instead in the states.
Arizona on Wednesday became the fourth state that will ask voters this year to undercut the proposed federal legislation, which would make it easier for workers to unionize.
The state's Republican-controlled Legislature approved the measure minutes before concluding a single-issue special session.
Voters will decide in November whether the state constitution should require a secret ballot for workers deciding whether to create a union. Voters in South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah also will be asked similar questions.
