During the summer of 2009, in order to act on a MDP Platform Resolution titled "Employees' Bill Of Rights", one hundred plus Michigan Democratic Party (MDP) members volunteered to work under the leadership of Mark Brewer, Tina Abbott and Darrell Tennis to document thoughts and ideas which should comprise an Employee Bill Of Rights.
At the November 2009 meeting of the Democratic State Central Committee the Employee Bill Of Rights was presented by Mark Brewer and was adapted as MDP Policy.

The following is the document that was adopted. Please feel free to make and distribute copies.

On 2010/08/24 the MDP Platform committee approved the 2010 MDP Platform which has the EMPLOYEE BILL OF RIGHTS as an appendix!!!!!

In addition, the MDP Platform committee approved the following Resoulution which became part of the 2010 MDP Platform.

This resolution tasks the MDP to continue to take a leadership position and organize, coordinate, convene and conduct a task force open to all MDP membership within the next calendar year for the purpose of producing initial, specific, draft legislation based on the “Michigan Employees’ Bill Of Rights” document to be provided to the Governor and legislative leadership so it can be acted upon during the Michigan 2011 legislative agenda/process in order to codify an “Employees’ Bill Of Rights” within the State Of Michigan; thus, establishing Michigan as a leadership state that addresses the needs of both business and employees in the 21st century.
