Congratulations on your decision to seek elected office. We appreciate your willingness to engage in the political process and seek solutions to Michigan’s most pressing problems.
The Michigan AFL-CIO is a diverse, compassionate and powerful labor movement that improves the lives of working people by fighting to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state. We represent one million active and retired union members from nearly fifty affiliated unions and constituency groups.
With Michigan AFL-CIO Advocates, we advocate for public policy solutions and educational opportunities that support working families to state legislators and municipalities across Michigan. Our Policy Platform (miaflcio.org/platform) articulates the legislative and budgetary solutions we believe support our members. It focuses on protecting the rights of working people, building quality infrastructure, growing vibrant communities, creating a fair economy, and promoting voting freedoms to protect our democracy.
The following questionnaire evaluates your support for our platform, and will be used as a guide for our endorsement process. We have a proud record of endorsing Democrats, Republicans, and non-partisan candidates that support our members at the local, state and federal levels. We may also use your responses to communicate to our members your stances on issues that are important to working families.
We appreciate you taking the time to complete this questionnaire, and thank you in advance for standing with working families across your district.
