Coalitions

Leading the business community

We believe there is strength in numbers. At the Minnesota Chamber, we build coalitions of various companies, organizations and industries to tackle specific issues facing the business community. From supporting the development of energy and transportation infrastructure, to addressing challenges for Minnesota manufacturers, to supporting immigration reforms, our coalitions ensure legislators hear a unified voice from the business community. 

Core coalitions

United For Jobs Logo
United for Jobs is committed to reducing burdens on businesses, so all types and sizes of Minnesota companies can compete in the changing and global economy. The coalition is made up of more than 90 trade associations and local chambers of commerce and hundreds of individual businesses.

The Minnesota Chamber and Minnesota Building and Construction Trades Council jointly formed Jobs for Minnesotans. The coalition of business, labor and communities supports statewide opportunities for job creation from proposed copper-nickel mining projects in Minnesota. 

Issue-specific coalitions

Manufacturers' Coalition
The Manufacturers' Coalition brings together a wide range of individual manufacturing associations across the state to speak with one voice on issues common to manufacturers, regardless of size or sector.

Minnesota Business Immigration Coalition
Changing demographics are headed on a crash course for Minnesota’s employers, business community and the entire economy without immediate action to reform federal immigration laws. We support comprehensive federal reform including secure borders. Successful reform will modify immigration policies without creating more obstacles for workers to connect with employers. 
Minnesota Transportation Coalition
Transportation is key to our economic sustainability and we need an efficient multimodal system to move people and goods throughout our state. Our goal on behalf of the business community is to ensure reliable and efficient transportation, and sustain and strategic funding for transportation and other infrastructure.
