Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Union Members Rally and Canvass for Pro-Labor Candidates in Lansing

Rally in Lansing

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

More than two dozen union members from the Greater Lansing Labor Council recently gathered in Michigan’s state capital to kick off their Labor 2022 campaign. They came together from a range of different affiliates, including the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), Operating Engineers (IUOE), the UAW and the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA), to rally and canvass for candidates endorsed by the labor movement. The event was held in front of the Michigan State AFL-CIO’s office in Lansing, and Rep. Elissa Slotkin was there to thank union members for coming out and showing support.
