UAW STRIKE: AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler on President Biden’s Historic Show of Solidarity with Striking Workers

Washington, DC – Today, AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler released the following statement on President Joe Biden's historic visit to the picket line to support striking UAW workers in Detroit, Michigan. 

“President Biden is demonstrating once again that he is the most pro-union president in history. Working people know he has our backs every day and that he understands that UAW members’ fight for a fair contract is deeply connected to the struggle over the soul of our country. 

“We stand with President Biden, the UAW, and workers across the country who are sick and tired of getting the short end of the stick. Together, we're organized to fight back against the corporate CEOs who have rigged the system against working people for far too long.”
