Overview

The Economic Alliance for Michigan was established as a non-profit labor and business coalition by for-profit companies and unions in 1982. It was founded to create a forum to discuss issues they all faced in their day-to-day operations and implement plans to mitigate these problems. Their ultimate goal is to revive Michigan’s economy and preserve these working conditions to make the state a great place in which to do business and be employed. Some of the issues they are taking action on in 2013 are health care, unemployment insurance, and worker’s compensation. The current board is made up of half businesses and half labor unions, with representation from major corporations and unions.
