The National Association of Manufacturers this week launched Manufacturers United — a new digital platform to power the industry’s grassroots advocacy at a time when major policy issues, such as infrastructure investment and revisiting tax reform are before Congress.
“Manufacturers United is the central resource where manufacturers, those who work in our industry and everyday Americans who care about the future of manufacturing in the United States can come together and take meaningful action,” said NAM Assistant Vice President of Advocacy Michael O’Brien.
“Congress is currently working on urgent priorities ranging from infrastructure investments to revisiting tax reform,” O’Brien said. “Manufacturers United gives you the tools and resources —from posting key messages to social media, sending a message to your representative, all the way to helping you attend a congressional town hall or host a member at your facility — that help you take action.”
In addition to fighting new taxes on manufacturers and advancing national infrastructure investment, Manufacturers United will also keep businesses updated on other major issues important to manufacturers, such as workforce development, healthcare, and energy and environmental topics.
“Manufacturers United is about harnessing the power of manufacturing voices,” O’Brien said.
The National Association of Manufacturers represents 14,000 manufacturers — from small businesses to global leaders — in every industrial sector. NJBIA is the official New Jersey state liaison to NAM.
