2023 Candidate Endorsement Information

The Chicago Federation of Labor represents approximately 300 unions who in turn represent more than 500,000 working people in Chicago and Cook County. This fall, the CFL will conduct an endorsement process to determine which candidates best support working families and merit Labor’s endorsement for the 2023 Consolidated Primary Election on February 28.

Candidates seeking a CFL endorsement for Chicago Mayor, Treasurer, City Clerk, and Alderperson will be required to fill out a candidate questionnaire, which will be available on our website on Tuesday, October 25 and will be due no later than Tuesday, November 15. Candidates who complete a questionnaire will be scheduled for an interview with the CFL screening committee the week of December 5. If you are interested in participating in the CFL’s endorsement process, please fill out the short survey below and we will contact you with updates.

The CFL will conduct its endorsement process for 2023 suburban municipal races in March of 2023. Please do not fill out this form if you are running in a suburban municipal election. Please check back in January 2023 for more information on the CFL’s suburban municipal endorsement process.
