Sisters and brothers,
This has been a Legislative Session like no other. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, union members answered the call to stand up for Florida’s working people as part of this year’s Virtual Working Families Lobby Corps. Members called their legislators, sent emails, engaged virtually with their fellow union members, and took part in actions to fight back against bills attacking Florida’s working people and work for a brighter future for the Sunshine State.
Below you will find the Florida AFL-CIO’s round-up of major working families bills and information about the legislation, including whether or not they passed or failed. You can download the brief here. We faced some truly challenging bills this session, but thanks to our members and volunteers, we were able to accomplish truly great things for Florida’s working people.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in the fight for Florida’s working families.
President, Florida AFL-CIO
Secretary-Treasurer, Florida AFL-CIO
