    MPFFU History
    The Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union was established in 1934 and it is Michigan's largest professional, career firefighters organization, representing over 4,000 firefighter members. It is affiliated with the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF).

    MPFFU Mission
    The MPFFU Constitution and by-laws state that: the objectives of this Union shall be to cultivate a closer feeling of friendship and fellowship among the firefighters of the State of Michigan; to foster and encourage a higher degree of skill and efficiency; and to promote legislation which advances the interests of firefighters. In addition, being bound by the International Association of Fire Fighters Constitution and by-laws, the MPFFU and the IAFF jointly exist to: organize all full-time firefighters; to secure just compensation for their services and equitable settlement of their grievances; to promote as safe and healthy a working environment for firefighters and emergency medical or rescue workers as is possible through modern technology; to promote just and reasonable working conditions; to place the members on a higher plane of skill and efficiency; and to promote harmonious relations between firefighters and their employers.

    MPFFU Operations
    Every two years, delegates from all locals in Michigan meet at a convention to decide the goals and objectives and to elect officers of the MPFFU for the following two years. Members submit resolutions to change the constitution and by-laws or policies of the MPFFU. These ideas are debated and then voted on. The officers of the MPFFU include a President, Secretary-Treasurer, six regional Vice Presidents, and three Trustees. These individuals direct and oversee the operation of the MPFFU between conventions. In addition to the members of the executive board, many other individuals provide services to assist the MPFFU in accomplishing its objectives. Legal Counsel is provided by Michael O'Hearon, our lobbyist is Melissa Yutzey of Kelley Cawthorne, and over 17 members from various locals serve on the standing committees of the MPFFU. The standing committees are Safety & Health, EMS, Education & Training and Political Action, and PSO.

    MPFFU Facilities
    The MPFFU has two offices. Headquarters are in Trenton, Michigan staffed by an executive assistant and secretary and an office in the AFL-CIO building in Lansing to facilitate our legislative efforts. Our phone number is: 734-675-0206.

    MPFFU Dues & Revenue
    The dues for each member of the MPFFU are $13.71 per month, with locals only paying dues on a maximum of 401 members. Other revenues are derived from fund-raising activities, interest on investments and registration fees for conferences and conventions.
