On January 24, 2018, the Michigan AFL-CIO hosted its 2018 Legislative Convention and gubernatorial town hall on jobs and the economy at UAW Region 1 in Warren, Michigan. Here are a few photos from the day’s events.
At the convention we named Sen. Curtis Hertel, Jr. and Rep. Winnie Brinks as our Legislators of the Year, and Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones as our Local Elected Official of the Year. You can read more about the awards here.
The gubernatorial town hall was the first in a series of three events the Michigan AFL-CIO will host this year with the candidates for governor. You can read more about the first town hall in the Detroit News and MLive.
