DETROIT, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Albert Garrett, President of
Michigan Council 25 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal
Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO, issued the following statement:

"Michigan AFSCME Council 25, our affiliated local unions, and our supporters
will conduct a rally on Sunday, March 10, 2013, at 12:00 Noon, outside the DTE
Energy Building at Michigan and Third in Detroit," stated Garrett. "We are
protesting Governor Snyder's ill-considered plan to appoint an Emergency
Manager for Detroit, and the failure of corporate entities - including DTE
Energy - to pay the City of Detroit the taxes and fees they owe. If these
deadbeat debtors were to pay what they owe, Detroit would not be facing a
fiscal crisis today, and not even Governor Snyder would dare to suggest an
emergency manager."

Michigan AFSCME Council 25 represents more than 60,000 public workers across
Michigan. AFSCME International represents 1.6 million public workers
