The North Shore Federation of Labor is the organized voice of 80,000 working people and retirees in Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga Counties. Our membership is diverse and includes everyone from teachers, firefighters, and grocery store workers to electricians and aerospace workers. We come together at the North Shore AFL-CIO because we believe in one simple idea: when working people stand together, we can create positive change for everyone.

The delegate body of the North Shore AFL-CIO votes to endorse candidates and ballot measures based on how they will impact not only our unions but all working people. We carefully consider what each candidate and ballot measure will do to make stronger communities, including schools, healthcare, the right to form a union, trade policies, and much more. 

We invite all candidates for office to participate in our endorsement process:

Please complete the appropriate endorsement questionnaire (below) and the Workers' Bill of Rights (if applicable). Completed questionnaires can be sent via e-mail to Brian Pearson,, or delivered to our office: 3250 Euclid Ave. #250, Cleveland, OH 44115.

Please note: Our 2023 endorsements will be made on a rolling basis. For any questions or concerns on this process, please contact Brian Pearson at 216.881.7200 ext. 14 or
