The resolution to support HR 676 was brought to the Federation by Mike Madden, Chair of the Chisago Labor Assembly, AFL-CIO, and a representative of IAMAW Local Lodge 112.

The Federation represents 117 local unions with over 50,000 members in Chisago, Southern Dakota, Ramsey, and Washington counties of Minnesota.

The St. Paul Federation is the 141st Central Labor Council/Area Labor Federation and the 592nd union organization to endorse Conyers’ “Expanded and Improved Medicare for All” legislation.
