Who we are

And what we do for working Michiganders.

The Michigan State AFL-CIO is the state federation of labor, representing over 1,000,000 active and retired members of 59 unions throughout the state.

Our mission statement

Our mission is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation. To accomplish this mission, we work to:

  • Build a broad movement of Michigan workers by helping workers join and form unions.
  • Support Michigan workers as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces, as well as their communities, state and nation.
  • Strengthen the voice of Michigan working families at all levels of government and in a changing global economy.
  • The Michigan State AFL-CIO is a key part of the nation’s largest and strongest labor federation—the AFL-CIO, which unites 10.5 million working women and men of every race and ethnicity and from every walk of life.
