AFT Michigan Public Employees
The AFT Public Employees is the division of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) that represents federal, state and local government employees.
Thought he AFT was once exclusively a union of teachers and school employees, today its membership includes nurses and health professionals, higher education faculty and staff, paraprofessionals, PreK-12 teachers, and government employees. The AFT is the oldest public employee union of professionals in the country.
AFT Michigan represents workers in the City of Monroe.
The link between all public employees is strong. Organizing and mobilizing are essential among public sector professionals because decisions about our jobs - funding levels, program priorities, wages and benefits - are determined by policy makers. Through strong member mobilization and political action we secure better contracts and legislation that recognizes the value of public service and the contributions of government employees.
