This year, for Women's History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women's history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Nancy Heine of AFSCME.
Nancy Heine has been a champion of labor for many years, working to protect the jobs of county employees in Washtenaw County, Michigan, despite several repeated attempts to downsize, eliminate or privatize union jobs. With the repeated turnover of "friendly" elected officials and a hostile administration, Heine has done wonders to support her members in their fight for dignity in the workplace.
