The Michigan Court of Appeals will hear from backers and opponents of a plan to write collective bargaining rights for workers into the Michigan Constitution by placing the issue before voters in the November general election.

The court says in an order released Friday that oral arguments in the case will be heard Wednesday in Lansing.

An appeal was made after the Board of State Canvassers deadlocked 2-2 Wednesday on the ballot proposal by sponsors of Protect Our Jobs.

Nearly 700,000 signatures were filed to get the measure on the ballot.

Citizens Protecting Michigan's Constitution challenged the signatures, complaining that the ballot proposal was unconstitutionally broad.
