MNA PAC Fundraising Drive in April

In a historic victory, union workers will have their bargaining rights restored after Governor Whitmer signed a law to eliminate the unfair ‘right-to-work’ law in Michigan. This was made possible because voters last year elected more pro-worker lawmakers into office!

Elections matter, plain and simple. It’s important we continue to support lawmakers who will fight for the needs of workers. That is why members of our union started the MNA Political Action Committee (MNA PAC). This grassroots fund combines the donations of MNA members throughout the state, and then provides financial support to our allies running for public office.

During April, the MNA PAC is holding our annual spring fundraising drive. The goal is to gain 100 new monthly donors out of the nearly 13,000 union members in MNA. Will you support our pro-worker, pro-union allies by donating just $5 each month?
