At our monthly meeting on Tuesday 3/4/14, the Officers and Delegates of the Huron Valley Central Labor Council voted unanimously to endorse and support two important campaigns that will benefit working people in Washtenaw and Livingston counties:
1. The campaign to increase MI’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, and replace the tipped minimum wage with the standard minimum wage, via a ballot initiative that we would vote on this November; and
2. The campaign to increase the millage supporting public transit in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti township, to provide for a 44% improvement in bus services — this will be voted on in a special election to be held on Tuesday, May 6th.
Stay tuned for more on these campaigns and how organized labor will be supporting them!
