The Texas labor movement condemns yesterday’s outright assault on our democracy.

The Texas AFL-CIO today congratulated Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris on their hard-won victory in the presidential race, saying it opens new paths for working families.

Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy and Secretary-Treasurer Montserrat Garibay issued this statement:

Union members across Texas mourned former Texas AFL-CIO President John Patrick, who died last night at the age of 70 after a long illness.

"This is a sad day for the labor movement in Texas. Long before he became Secretary-Treasurer and then President of the Texas AFL-CIO, John Patrick earned a national reputation as a leader with the United Steelworkers, where he fought, often against almost insurmountable odds, to win fair contracts for working people and hold employers accountable to the agreements they made," Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy said.

In the most important election of our lives, working families will vote in record numbers no matter what Abbott says or does.

 The Texas AFL-CIO invites the public to join us for the state labor federation’s first-ever virtual concert, featuring the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Alejandro Escovedo and Brad Jordan (Scarface).

The Texas AFL-CIO “Banding Together” Concert premieres 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept 23. It may be accessed for free via our social media pages:

Our movement’s accomplishments remain relevant, but this is not a normal Labor Day. We are not in a normal time in history. This may be the last moment voters can repair the damage before we are too far gone.
