    Minneapolis PROUD!

    Our elected officials represent us and we are often proud to work with them to find the best solutions possible. Unfortunately, the ‘Working Families Agenda’ was developed without much input, and that is not Minneapolis PROUD. These one-size-fits-all approaches to regulating workplace relationships assumes City Hall knows what is best for all of us and our families.

    We’re Minneapolis PROUD because we didn’t just sit back and hope things will turn out ok, we made our voices heard! Last fall we were able to open elected officials’ eyes surrounding the proposed 28-day restrictive scheduling mandate and broaden the discussion around the safe and sick leave policy. However, if the City Council follows the recommendation of a City taskforce, Minneapolis is poised to impose one of the nation’s most sweeping local safe and sick leave policies. We need to stand up and once again make our voices heard.

    Tell the City Council that you are Minneapolis PROUD! and that Minneapolis employers are working hard to support their employees and their families – in ways that reflect the many different types and sizes of Minneapolis employers. Make Your Voice Heard!


    About Us

    Workforce Fairness Coalition is a group of businesses, non-profits and associations committed to keeping Minneapolis an innovative, progressive workforce leader. The Minneapolis PROUD initiative supports ensuring families and employers are able to create flexible work environments that benefit everyone. Formed in response to political pressure attempting to create a one size fits all “Working Families Agenda” that inserts the City of Minneapolis into the employer-employee relationship, we are committed to ensuring every workplace is fair and equitable, that an honest day's work yields an honest day's pay, and that Minneapolis employees and employers maintain fairness in the workplace.
