MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WXYZ) — Democratic presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar will participate in a forum in Madison Heights.

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union is hosting the first of its 2020 presidential candidate forums.

Each candidate will answer questions from union members in attendance.

The forum will take place at the UFCW Local 876 Union Hall in Madison Heights from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday.

"Hard-working Americans deserve an economy that creates good jobs now, and in the years ahead. Every candidate who wants to be President of the United States has a responsibility to share their vision and ideas, and how they will address major threats to the future of work, like automation and the companies that are pushing this vision, like Amazon. Our 1.3 million members and their families will play a major role in the 2020 election, and as we have heard from our members, they want to know exactly where these presidential candidates stand on the issues that matter to them and their families," UFCW said in a release.
