The Michigan State Police Troopers Association (MSPTA) was elected the exclusive labor representative of troopers and sergeants of the Michigan State Police in 1979. The election was held as a result of a constitutional amendment approved by the Michigan electorate in 1978 that gave troopers and sergeants the constitutional right to engage in collective bargaining with their employer.
The MSPTA has negotiated approximately eight collective bargaining agreements in the succeeding years. Two contracts were reached through the process of binding arbitration.
The MSPTA is responsible for administering the current collective bargaining agreement from the standpoint of its members, which includes, among other things, participation in a number of contractual labor/management committees. Read more >
