LANSING, MI – Statement from the Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron Bieber on Senator Debbie Stabenow’s announcement to not seek re-election in 2024:
“Since day one, Senator Debbie Stabenow has been breaking barriers and making history in the U.S. Senate. She shattered the glass ceiling for Michigan women by not only serving as the first Michigan woman elected to the U.S. Senate, but by also rising to be the No. 3 Democrat in Senate leadership,” said Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron BIEBER. “Working folks in Michigan and across the country have been positively impacted by her achievements in her time in public service. In her historically productive career in the U.S. Senate, Debbie never wavers from her core values and always puts Michigan’s working families first. She’s a true leader and an even greater friend.”
The Michigan AFL-CIO, Michigan’s largest labor organization, is a federation representing forty different labor organizations, eighteen different central labor councils, and eight constituency groups representing over 1 million union members and their families.
