The Michigan AFL-CIO questionnaire is composed of a range of policy matters that impact the lives of union members and their families across Michigan. The questions are derived from the Michigan AFL-CIO Policy Platform that was formally adopted at the union’s Legislative Convention in the fall of 2021 and covers issues like fighting for the repeal of so-called right-to-work, the restoration of prevailing wage, increasing funding for education, and building a cleaner, greener economy.

The Michigan AFL-CIO, Michigan’s largest labor organization, is a federation of forty different labor organizations, eighteen local labor councils, and eight constituency groups representing over 1 million union members and their families.
