The organization represents 1,600 local unions across the state from 48 different international unions and includes firefighters, factory workers, electricians, educators, plumbers, postal workers, miners and municipal employees.
“If elected, Michael Wager will work tirelessly for the working poor, those struggling to make it into the middle class, and working families in his district and all across Ohio,” Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga said in a news release.
Wager of Moreland Hills said in a statement that he was pleased to received the endorsement. In the Nov. 4 election, he faces incumbent U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce, R-Russell Township, and Libertarian David Macko of Solon.
"The 14th District deserves a representative who will stand up for workers' rights including a livable minimum wage, paycheck fairness and the hard-earned right to collective bargaining," Wager said. "I will continue my efforts to promote economic growth for all Americans and a stronger, more prosperous middle class.”
The 14th Congressional District consists of all of Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties, plus portions of Cuyahoga, Portage, Summit and Trumbull counties.
