Throughout National Hispanic Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling labor leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Hispanics and Latinos have made to our movement. Today's profile features Ernie Sandoval.
Ernie Sandoval is a young member of the APWU who volunteered as a shop steward. Through his diligence and training, he eventually became his local's clerk craft director. When he isn't working as a postal clerk, filing grievances and protecting the APWU-USPS collective bargaining agreement, he trains in jiu-jitsu. He knows that to be the best version of himself, he must consistently work to better his craft.
