Statement from DAGA Executive Director Sean Rankin on Passing of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka:

August 5, 2021

Washington, DC— “It is with surprise and sadness we mourn the passing of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.  President Trumka demonstrated an unwavering commitment to advocating for the needs of working men and women – fighting for higher wages, safer working conditions, and affordable healthcare.  He also reminded us of the dignity that develops from holding good jobs that let people build a future for themselves, their families, and communities. The nation lost a champion for working people today, and it is up to all of us to step forward and continue this work.”

Our democracy can't wait.
