2023 has proven to be a great year for Michigan’s working people. Michigan’s pro-worker majorities made great strides towards restoring workers’ rights. Lawmakers passed a series of measures restoring and reinforcing collective bargaining rights – affecting everyone from teachers to construction workers – making Michigan one of the top states for workers going into the new year. We also saw historic strike actions take place across the state as workers fought for better pay, benefits, and working conditions, which is vital to the success of Michigan workers and their families.


But the work is nowhere near done. We must work to restore a pro-worker majority in Michigan’s legislature. Michigan workers still face unfair barriers placed in their way by previous administrations, we need a strong pro-worker legislature to help us remove these barriers and help carry us forward. Those entrusted to public office must be committed to people whose labor built and continues to build this state and our country.
