Introducing the 'State of the Unions' Podcast

State of the Unions
AFL-CIO

The AFL-CIO has launched another tool to bring you the issues and stories that matter to working people. Our new podcast, “State of the Unions,” officially debuted today with an interview with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the pediatrician who helped expose the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.

One in four Americans listen to podcasts on a monthly basis. “State of the Unions” will capture the stories of workers across the country. It’s hosted by two young and diverse members of the AFL-CIO team: Political Mobilization Director Julie Greene and Executive Speechwriter Tim Schlittner. A new episode will drop every other Wednesday featuring interesting interviews with workers and our allies across the country, as well as compelling insights from the podcast’s hosts.

Learn more about Julie and Tim in their inaugural episode and check out their interview with Dr. Hanna-Attisha.

The upcoming schedule is as follows:

  • Wednesday, Oct. 31: Mayor Dahlia Vertreese (IUOE) of Hillside, New Jersey.

  • Wednesday, Nov. 14: Post-election recap and analysis.

State of the Unions” is available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and anywhere else you can find podcasts.
