Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Hispanics and Latinos have made to the labor movement. Today's profile features Frank Rodriguez.
Frank Rodriguez has been with the local for more than 30 years and rose through the ranks from sergeant-at-arms to his current role as president. Rodriguez is also organizer, JAC trustee, health fund trustee and fund trustee for HFIU Local 19. Rodriguez is passionate about the outreach and leadership development of young Latino workers. He also is a dedicated volunteer who helps facilitate thousands of sock donations to the labor council's annual Sock Drive.
