You Made the Difference

This Midterm Election working people made our voices heard and labor-endorsed candidates across Massachusetts and the country won! We know that during these times when our rights as working and middle-class Americans, immigrants, people of color, and women are under attack, it is crucial that we stand together and that our voices are front and center in the public arena. This year, the Massachusetts AFL-CIO endorsed a slate of candidates and ballot questions in state races to advance a pro-worker, pro-family agenda, strategically focusing on union member candidates and candidates that will work for all of the people of the Commonwealth. Our newly elected and re-elected candidates will increase our voice in Massachusetts.
