Throughout Native American Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Native Americans have made to the labor movement and toward expanding the rights of working people. Today's profile features Christina Riley of LIUNA.
Graduating from the Northwest Laborers Apprenticeship program and continuing with ongoing training has paved the way for Christina Riley to have a successful career with endless opportunities for growth. She is grateful for the chance to mentor other members and serve as the co-chair of the Washington State Apprenticeship and Training Council Tribal Committee, where she collaborates with local tribes. Having been a member of Laborers (LIUNA) Local 252 for 17 years, she has witnessed LIUNA's dedication to the tribes, and she is proud to be a part of it.
