Naperville, IL – Today, Bill Foster announced that he received the endorsement of the Illinois AFL-CIO for the 2018 General Election. The Illinois AFL-CIO represents 1,500 local unions and nearly 900,000 union members across the state of Illinois.
“I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Illinois AFL-CIO. Organized labor has been a critical component of our country’s strong economy and a source of opportunities for hardworking Americans. The AFL-CIO works tirelessly to ensure that workers have the power they need to thrive,” Foster said. “We will not be able to stop the destructive acts of President Trump and his Republican allies without organized labor and American workers. I look forward to working side-by-side with organized labor to elect Democrats up and down the ballot and to continue working with them to improve the lives of American workers after November.”
