    March 30, 2023 // A Kalamazoo AFL-CIO chapter official was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Park Club in Kalamazoo, according to a Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety report obtained Thursday by News Channel 3. News Channel 3 has decided to name the suspect in this case, Jonathan Byrd, president and director of external affairs of South-Central Michigan Area Labor Council AFL-CIO, due to his political prominence. The report states that Byrd sexually assaulted a female guest at an April 2022 private gathering at the Park Club at 219 W. South St. hosted by Sen. Sean McCann (D-Kalamazoo).
