Our Union, Our Michigan

At SEIU Local 517M, we are the people of Michigan serving the people of Michigan. We are proud to be connected to our members as we join forces to serve, grow, and lead within our communities. Our voice takes many shapes, as scientists and engineers, road commission crews, paraprofessionals, unemployment insurance examiners, technicians, librarians, city workers, and more. We are public employees.
