It’s 2021 and the most powerful union organization in the nation has never had a woman President.

Until now.

The AFL-CIO has elected its first female President.

Liz Shuler (center of photo above) has served as the organization’s Secretary-Treasurer since 2009.

She replaces the late Richard Trumka, who led the labor federation for more than a decade until his death on August 5th 2021.
