Is the Governor of Michigan going to eliminate unions, or the collective agreements?

See I work for the Michigan based company, Meijer. And I hear things about how the Governor has already passed a law to have the power to eliminate, and or change the agreements. And I'm worried it will happen. Also, I read that Snyder is trying to make Michigan a right-to-work state, can someone explain this to me? Its all confusing. If I can decide to be in the union or not. Is what I got from what I read.
