DETROIT - Today, Senator Adam Hollier received AFSCME Council Local 25’s endorsement in the race for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.

Michigan AFSCME Council 25 is the largest union in the Michigan AFL-CIO and the strongest union of public employees and health care employees in our state. They have more than 100,000 members in Michigan and more than 1.6 million AFSCME members nationwide. AFSCME Council Local 25 is proud of the work they do and believes that all workers engaged in public service deserve fair wages, good benefits and a secure retirement, as well as a voice on the job.

“AFSCME endorsed candidates are committed to standing with AFSCME on the issues that matter most to our membership- good paying jobs, secure retirements, affordable healthcare and prescriptions, quality public education, and anti-privatization measures,” said Council 25 President Lawrence A. Roehrig. “Too many politicians in Washington and Lansing, and even all the way to our Local and County governments, see working people as line items in a budget to be scrimped and saved on. However, these candidates are ready to work with us to put Michigan’s working families first.”

Lorna Davison, the AFSCME Council 25 Statewide PEOPLE Committee Chairperson and Victim’s Advocate in the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office with AFSCME Local 1659 shared President Roehrig’s excitement. “These candidates sent in questionnaires and came before committees of AFSCME members across the state to get to know us and understand the issues we fight for every day. They know that AFSCME members have kept our schools, hospitals, and communities running throughout the pandemic, and now we’re excited to help get these folks elected to office so we can fight together for good jobs and strong communities.”

“Unions are so critically important to the success of our country, and I am honored to have the support and power of AFSCME Council 25 with me in my race for Congress,” Senator Adam Hollier said. “I come from a union household, and I know that unions exist not just to serve the interest of their own members, but their hard work lifts up the outlook for all workers by setting the bar for respect, safe work conditions and quality pay. I am thrilled to work together with the leaders and members of AFSCME Council 25 to create lasting change for the people of Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.”

AFSCME Council Local 25 is the latest union to endorse Senator Adam Hollier for Michigan’s 13th Congressional District, joining UFCW Local 876, SEIU Healthcare Michigan, UNITE! Here, and Pipefitters, Steamfitters Union Local 636, among many other individuals and organizations.
