For over thirty years, the Economic Alliance for Michigan (EAM) has facilitated cooperation between businesses and labor unions by collaborating on matters that affect Michigan’s economic environment.

In 1982, The EAM was created as a private nonprofit corporation by companies and unions in the for-profit sector. We are the leader in state government relations when it comes to bringing both political parties together for a common cause – the success of Michigan.

The EAM excels on cooperative, action-oriented endeavors to maintain and improve the economic climate of Michigan as a place to do business and be employed. We focus on the issues that matter most to our members and legislation that is favorable to job growth. The EAM rallies behind topics pertaining to both our business and labor members and issues that affect the state’s economy, such as:

  • Economic Development
  • Healthcare & Insurance
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Unemployment Insurance
  • Infrastructure
