Our wages and benefits are under attack by our own state house & state senate. So if you have never been politically active, now is the time to start!!! Call your state rep. & state senator and tell them you do not agree with either of these bills and hope that they would vote against them. Call 517-373-2400 tell them where you live and they will connect you with them. Help protect our wages & benefits call today.
We hold many important events and meetings throughout the year, including monthly membership meetings, retiree council meetings, our annual Labor Day parade, annual mid-state meeting, and more! For more information or to RSVP, take a look at our Events page.
