Montgomery, Alabama – The Alabama AFL-CIO has endorsed Kyle Pierce for State Representative District 28 following an extensive screening and interview process. The Alabama AFL-CIO represents about 30 national and international unions and about 60,000 workers. That equals 13 percent of Alabama’s workforce, but, in Etowah County, that percentage is much higher due to the strength of great union employers like Goodyear-Gadsden.

“As a grandson of a union steelworker, I know the importance of strong labor unions in making sure that everybody has the opportunity to earn a good living,” Pierce said. “I look forward to following in the footsteps of former State Senator Larry Means and current State Representative Craig Ford to make sure that Gadsden-Goodyear workers have every resource necessary to keep strong good paying union jobs in Etowah County.”
