Three ways the Michigan Laborers are active in local, state, and federal politics. 

  • Organizing as Members 
  • Educating elected officials about our priorities
  • Donating directly to candidates and causes through the (LPL PAC) Laborers Political League Political Action Committee.

As a Union, we are willing to work with and support any elected official or candidate for office that respects the everyday, hard work of the Michigan Laborers. We endorse candidates (Dem. Rep. Ind. or other) who support our union and our members’ issues and jobs.
