    Since the beginning of May and with about three weeks of leading the city under his belt, Mayor Brandon Johnson’s has reported more than $830,000 in donations — much of it coming from unions that previously backed or donated to Johnson’s mayoral challengers. 

    Johnson was sworn in May 15 along with all 50 alderpersons. On the same day, Johnson issued four executive orders, one creating the role of deputy mayor for labor relations. The new deputy mayor position is expected to coordinate on fostering and developing “the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of Chicago, in addition to improving working conditions, advancing new job opportunities for employment, and protecting workers’ rights,” according to a news release.
