DETROIT, Dec. 3 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Michigan Federation of Teachers & School Related Personnel (MFT&SRP) joins the UAW in their efforts to preserve the domestic partner language in their recently negotiated contract for their state employee members.

"As similar language appears in several of our locals' contracts, we feel strongly that health care benefits for all our members, their partners and families is a priority," said MFT&SRP President David Hecker.

Hecker went on to say, "We will continue to encourage legislators and support labor to bring about fair and equitable treatment for everyone."
