AFSCME President Lee Saunders on Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis’ Resignation

Washington, DC — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement in regards to Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis:

“We are grateful for Secretary Solis’ extraordinary commitment to working men and women. At a time when powerful, moneyed forces have come together to pursue a virulent, anti-union agenda, she focused the Department of Labor’s attention on putting Americans back to work, making the workplace safer and healthier, and protecting and preserving the rights of union members and working families. Secretary Solis is an ally, a friend and a tireless advocate. She will be missed.”
