Upper Peninsula Labor-Management Council, Inc.

Organized in 1971, the Upper Peninsula Labor-Management Council, Inc. is established to serve as a representative group from both labor and management in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  The Council was formed with the belief by both labor and management that the goals of each side are harmonious in most cases, and that there should be a separate and distinct organization that both sides can participate in to further their mutual goal.



*Promote Labor and Management cooperation within the public and private sector through education.

*  Recognize the rights of both Labor and Management to co-exist and prosper.

*  Promote a greater understanding to the public through examples of effective Labor-Management cooperation.

*  Enhance the growth and stability of quality jobs in the Upper Peninsula by cooperation with others that are promoting and working towards this goal.

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that longtime MNA leader and UPLMC Treasurer Carolyn Hietamaki has passed away.  Those of us who had the honor of knowing Carolyn will remember her relentless determination, fiery passion and generosity as a nurse, mentor, labor leader, activist and friend.  Rest in peace our dear friend.
