American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Endorses Senator Sherrod Brown for Reelection

COLUMBUS, OH  – Today, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) endorsed Senator Sherrod Brown for reelection. AFSCME workers share Sherrod’s  commitment to making sure hard work pays off for everyone, including workers in public service.

“AFSCME workers serve Ohioans every day, from ensuring our kids get to school safely, to keeping our streets safe and clean, to caring for sick Ohioans during their times of need,” said Senator Sherrod Brown. “Ohioans depend on AFSCME workers, and when you love this country, you fight for the people who make it work. I am honored to have AFSCME’s support as we continue our fight to advance workers’ rights.”

“Sherrod Brown is the model of an elected official who fights for everyday working people and is unafraid to stand up to runaway corporate greed,” said AFSCME President Lee Saunders. “He believes in the Dignity of Work and the right to have a voice on the job. During the pandemic, Sherrod joined AFSCME Ohio members in speaking out about dangerous working conditions. He secured critical aid for states, cities, towns and schools that saved AFSCME jobs and has led to fair contracts for public service workers. He also saved pensions for more than 100,000 Ohioans and led bipartisan efforts to pass an infrastructure law that is rebuilding the state’s roads and bridges. Ohio’s working families have a fierce champion and proven, effective leader in Sherrod Brown. AFSCME is proud to endorse Sherrod and can’t wait to work with him for another six years.”

“There has been no better friend of labor than Sherrod Brown,” said President of OCSEA Chris Mabe. “He was in the trenches with us on Senate Bill 5 when they tried to strip us of collective bargaining rights and has been a fighter for our pension systems since day one. He understands the value of our work and always has the backs of working families.” 

“No elected official in our living memory has been more loyal and devoted to working people than our Senator Sherrod Brown,” said Executive Director of OAPSE Joe Rugola. “For that reason alone, every working Ohioan owes him their vote in 2024.” 

“Senator Sherrod Brown has been a consistent champion for AFSCME Ohio Council 8 members and their families. He understands that all workers, whether newly organized museum workers in Columbus or established union social workers in Cleveland deserve dignity and respect,” said President of AFSCME Ohio Council 8 R. Sean Grayson. “Our members can count on Senator Brown to stand with them in their fight for safer workplaces, better benefits, and to protect their retirement security. The 32,000 members of AFSCME Ohio Council 8 are proud to support Senator Sherrod Brown.”
