Our Jobs, Our Union, Our Future!

Communication is key both before and during negotiations. Knowing your priorities for bargaining, helps the committee and union staff target efforts and results in securing important language and protections you want.

To do this, we have created this brief bargaining survey. Every response brings MSEA closer to discovering members priorities for bargaining, so please take the time to respond to all of the survey questions. If you have any questions, please contact the MSEA Central Office at (517) 394-5900.
