AFL-CIO: Julie Su’s Confirmation Hearing Shows She Is the Right Choice to Lead the Department of Labor

Statement from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler on Julie Su’s hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP):

Julie Su’s testimony today before the Senate HELP Committee reinforced what the labor movement has always known: Su has the necessary experience, values and leadership qualities to be our secretary of labor. Her record of standing up for working people and marginalized communities is stellar and unimpeachable. She is the right person for the job. We call on the U.S. Senate to swiftly vote to confirm Julie Su.
