AFL-CIO Statement on One Year of War in Ukraine

Statement from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler and AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond on the labor movement’s continued support for Ukraine:

As we mark one year since the start of Russia’s unprovoked attack on Ukraine, the labor movement continues to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. We reiterate our call for an end to the violent invasion of a sovereign nation, and remain committed to re-establishing peace and democracy in Ukraine and the region.

The working people and families of Ukraine have exemplified nothing less than courage even in the face of such brutal aggression. We commend their bravery, and we will continue to work alongside our trade union partners and allies on the ground to provide crucial, lifesaving humanitarian support.
