For Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Tamaki Corella of UAW.
Tamaki Corella is from Japan, but she is pure Texas. She has been an active member of UAW Local 276 in Arlington, Texas, working for General Motors. Corella was part of the 2019 strike and walked the picket line to fight for justice.
