After 8 years of Republican reign, Friday morning it came to an end! The Michigan Legislature closed out its Lame Duck session after a grueling 22-hour session that ended on Friday morning.
Once again, the MPFFU stopped the lame duck attack on our pensions and retire health care. We initiated and participated in over 40 meetings with legislators on that issue alone.
The MPFFU successfully killed SB 1209 (bill to adversely amend the way the hard cap and 80-20 is calculated) and SB 1260 (bill to require unions pay for recertification elections every two years)
Thank you for all of your calls, emails and time spent at the Capitol lobbying to stop these bills.
The MPFFU also spent countless hours participating alongside the AFL-CIO and their lobbying efforts to prevent many other anti-labor bills from being passed.
During this last 8 years of Republican control, the MPFFU stopped many, many pieces of bad legislation that would have impacted the way we bargain our wages, pensions and health benefits.
And even with all the negative bills that were introduced, the MPFFU successfully passed and funded the First Responder Presumed Coverage Fund and developed a stable funding source for training fire fighters.
With your continued assistance and participation in the legislative process, we look forward to even greater success in 2019!
