|Upper Peninsula Regional Labor Federation|
Marquette County Labor Council delegates recently voted unanimously for unification with the Delta County Trades and Labor Council, whose delegates also adopted the unification pact.

You know better than anyone that buying union-made products and services is a great way to stand in unity with our brothers and sisters.

With 45,000 workers represented by the Communications Workers of America, AT&T is the only national unionized wireless provider and is the clear choice for union members, their families and for the union staff working to promote their interests.
