Largest Federation of Unions in the United States Endorse Ramon Alexander


July 21, 2016

The Florida AFL-CIO representing approximately 500 local labor unions and labor councils, which represents over a million workers, retirees and their families in Florida, endorsed Ramon Alexander for State Representative House District 8.

The Florida AFL-CIO is comprised of workers across a broad range of trades and professions including construction workers, health care professionals, classroom teachers, agricultural workers, hotel and restaurant employees, transportation workers, firefighters, law enforcement and correctional officers.

Over the past five decades the Florida AFL-CIO has worked to provide better lives for all workers, members or not, through political and legislative action, grassroots mobilization and education. They also provide a wide range of community services working to build stronger and healthier communities.

The Florida AFL-CIO is one of 50 state federations of the national AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor – Congress of Industrial Organizations). They are part of a long and proud tradition, one that has existed since the earliest days of our nation and has worked tirelessly to build a more just society based on social and economic fairness, a reverence for human rights and a commitment to the American dream.
