Michigan Labor Management Association


MLMA is the premier labor/management associaton in Michigan that provides information and opportunities for labor and management to collaboratively address issues in the workplace.


MLMA is the only state-wide forum in Michigan that brings labor and management together to discover and act on issues of mutual interest.

The MLMA Philosophy towards the unionized workplace is that when labor and management meet at the bargaining table and communicate they will discover that they have a great deal more in common than in conflict.  Further, instead of waging a struggle to divide up scarcity, we believe that we should look at ways of cooperating to eliminate waste, create stable resources, increase productivity and then intelligently find a way to stabilize our future.

Members who participate in MLMA activities, such as our regular training sessions around the state and the annual conference, gain invaluable insight into the unique world of joint labor-management within the state of Michigan as well as the ability to spend time and build relationships with others who are passionate about the importance of a joint approach to identifying and resolving issues in the workplace.
