The Michigan AFL-CIO has endorsed John Cherry to be the next State Representative for the 49th District. The mission of the AFL-CIO is to improve lives of working families, bring economic justice to the workplace, as well as social justice to our state and nation. Michigan AFL-CIO supports the rights of workers to join and form unions. By exercising their collective voice, ordinary people bargain to improve their living conditions, working conditions and communities. “We support the candidate who shares the interest of working families,’ said Ron Beiber. “John Cherry is that candidate.”


John Cherry said, “I am a member of SEIU and a former member of UFCW. My parents have both been union members, my grandparents were union members, my cousins are union members. For me, these unions don’t just represent better wages and working conditions. For me, unions represent a better community; one where we all work together for the betterment of our citizens.  Thank you to the 1,000,000 current and retired AFL-CIO members of Michigan for believing in my ability to represent you and our shared beliefs in the 49th State House District.”
