AFL-CIO President, Richard Trumka, sent a letter of disappointment to Texas Representative, Henry Cuellar, who voted to roll back a multitude of worker protections. Read the letter below:
Statement by AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler on International Women’s Day:
Betsy DeVos is the most ideological, anti-public education nominee put forward since President Carter created a Cabinet-level Department of Education.
We need to make sure Ted Cruz and John Cornyn hear loud and clear that Texans want an education secretary who supports and will strengthen public education - not one who’s determined to destroy it.
Richard Trumka is president of the 12.5 million member AFL-CIO, America’s labor federation.
