The Michigan AFL-CIO Questionnaire is comprised of a range of political issues that impact the lives of union members and their families across Michigan. The questions are taken from the Michigan AFL-CIO Policy Platform which was formally adopted at the federation’s legislative convention in the fall of 2021 and covers issues such as fighting for the repeal of the so-called right to work, restoring prevailing wages, increasing funding 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 more than one million union members and their families.
