AFSCME Local 25 and Local 2057 in MI endorse Bernie Sanders

In another show of growing labor support, two AFSCME Local unions have voted unanimously to endorse U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders for President. AFSCME Local 25 and Local 2057 were impressed by Sanders’ decades long support to labor and his unwavering commitment to fight for the issues of concern for working-class Americans.

AFSCME Local 25, a member segment of the statewide AFSCME Council 25, represents employees of Wayne County that work to protect the county’s national resources, public health, and provide services to youth, seniors, and Veterans.

“Bernie talks about problems most politicians shy away from: substantially raising the minimum wage, enacting free college tuition and providing true universal healthcare,” said Local 25 president, Wendy Lukianoff. “Bernie is the only one with a program to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, end for-profit prisons, reform our drug laws, address climate change and provide healthcare for all.”

AFSCME Local 2057 is comprised of a diverse membership of Foreman of both the County of Wayne and the Wayne County Airport Authority.
