      Michigan Local President Graduates From Harvard Trade Union Program

      Congratulations to Dearborn Heights, MI Local 1355 President Phil Hall on his graduation from the Harvard Trade Union Program (HTUP). The program packs a semester’s worth of material into an intensive six-week residential session for union leaders. Participants receive high-level leadership training, gain more insight into issues facing the labor movement and exchange ideas. Since 1942, the Harvard Trade Union Program has prepared union activists to meet the challenge of dynamic leadership within their unions and society. The program helps union leaders develop keener analytical, managerial and problem-solving skills, as well as discover ways to deepen public understanding of the value and importance of labor unions. The IAFF awards scholarships to members who demonstrate active participation within their local as an officer, committee member or in another leadership position.

      Legislative Update - March 11-15, 2019



      Meet your 2019 House and Senate Members

      By now you know that almost all of the candidates endorsed by the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union, from the top to the bottom of the ticket, were elected to office on November 6th.  The entire MPFFU membership should be proud of the role our organization and its members played in getting these great candidates elected.  The MPFFU is also grateful for the assistance provided by the IAFF to many of our endorsed candidates. 

      But our work is just beginning now that we have new friends in Lansing and Washington.  We must continue to be politically active and get to know these newly elected officials as well as their staffs.  You may also find some doors now open to establish a better relationship with incumbents that previously refused to meet with you.  Stay involved - Stay active!
