Minnesota Council of Nonprofits board to hear from proposed union staff members

On Tuesday, March 9, 2021, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) received a request from several MCN employees to be recognized as a union affiliated with the Minnesota Newspaper & Communications Guild.

As a state association with over 2,200 nonprofit member organizations from across Minnesota and the region, a democratically elected and representative board of directors, and a sincere belief in the importance and vitality of the nonprofit sector and the people and communities that make it go, MCN is energized to explore the proposal in a way that is respectful, inclusive, and holistically considerate.

Before responding to the proposal, MCN is committed to hearing from all interested parties, including staff members and the organization’s board of directors, and thoughtfully considering full implications for the organization and its far-reaching work.

MCN’s board of directors will hear directly from staff representatives at its board meeting on Tuesday, March 16, 2021. We look forward to the opportunity to share further information following the meeting.
